I've always felt that the RX represents the pinnacle of engineering in pre-autofocus SLRs.
Just got two beautiful EMs with a motor winder in the mail. They're in wonderful condition. Purchased here this past week and arrived already. WOW!
OM 2S. One of my favorites (have 5 or 6 of them.) Wonderful cameras until the circuit goes bad at which time they become great paperweights. Bill Barber
Picked up a Minolta SRT-201 for next to nothing a coupla weeks ago. It's off to John Titterington for a CLA.
Fed 5c working perfectly, I do like my rangefinders

Nice. I have the 101 which was CLAed about a year before I got it. It's kind of funny, but I ignored the SRT Minoltas for years, and now I've really fallen in love with them. Tough workhorses with great lenses.

I got my first SRT-101 back in '69. Over the years, I've had an XG-7, an X-570, and an X-700, but these days I'm down to all SRTs: two 101's, a 102, and now a 201. You're right -- tough workhorses and great lenses.

I wonder how much you'll use the 90mm lens. I never used mine, the 50mm regularly and the 35mm is almost glued to my M7.
A pitty though, since it's a beautiful lens. Maybe my choice of subjects??
Okay, I'll take the 90mm and leave the others at home next time I go wandering around with a Leica and see what it will bring me.....
Enjoy your great piece of machinery to get even more creative.

Thanks. I was thinking the 90mm would be a good portrait lens. I have already been looking at 50mm summilux lenses, I would love to have one of these too.
