    I have spent good time on reading photography magazines especially 54 to 86 and Summitar cathed my eye. Test results were excellent. I bought a IIIF with oncoated Summitar later other IIIF with coated one. I am using Leica for past 20 years. But first camera was a factory new
    Zenit ET with selling 46cm crash Istanbul Mehmet Agop cymbal for around 40 dollars today.
    Can you please ask easier questions ? One Apug members request .

    My first (around 1970) was an Asahi Pentax H3. A few years later, I traded it for a Spotmatic, which I used through college, and into the 80's. I sold it to a friend, when I switched to Olympus. I went to visit her about a month ago, and she said, "got something for you." She gave me back the Spotmatic. It could use new seals, and the shutter needs exercising, but it felt great to hold it again. 30+ years later, it's come home...

    Canon AV1.

    Back in 1982 I was going on a trip to Knoxville Tennessee to see the Worlds Fair and then down to Florida to go swimming in the ocean. I was working part time at a Venture store while going to community college. My boss marked down the display Canon with flash to $80.00 so I bought that for my trip.

    With the AV1 being aperture preferred only, I ended up selling it to help fund a Contax 139. It was the Canon AV1 though that really started my interest in photography.

    Hanimex Practika Super TL,a gift from a long departed uncle. Still have it although it's in need of a good CLR and finding someone willing to touch it seems impossible.

    Leica

    A Leica 3F with four lenses including a 127mm Wollensak f3.5 lens. Before that I had a 120-size Rolleiflex that I won in a raffle in 1956 for a buck.

    Well I immediately started with medium format - a Brownie Hawkeye box camera shooting 620 film.

    But first 35mm was a Miranda. A "D" I believe.
