    Bell & Howell/Canon Canonet 19 - I believe the first of the Canons imported. Has the film advance lever on the bottom rather than the top. After loosening it up, it seems to work just fine. Found it at a thrift store.

    Good deal... shame it wasnt a QL-17 instead, but I bet you did not have to pay more than 5 to 10 at the thrift store. Extra bonus if the meter/auto function sitll works.

    Picked up an Agfa Karat 4 for $10 at a moving sale a few weeks ago. (Solagon 1:2/50) Rangefinder was rather sluggish a first, but OK now. Everything else is good, although the resolution was not quite what I'd hoped. I've cleaned on crud off the rear element I missed at first. I hope that improves things. There was a repair sticker from the late 70's inside. Perhaps the lens wasn't reassembled properly.
    Oh well.

    Olympus LC that needed a CLA (I knew it would) ... the VF is not as good as an Oly 35SP, but the shutter is OH so quiet and sweet!
    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.

    Topcon 35-L fixed-lens rangefinder. $74 on eBay. Sold AS-IS, hoping it's fine enough. Fine 44/2 Topcor lens, parallax-corrected Albada finder. For the Topcon collector in me.

    Leica R7 bought from eBay for £36 GBP... Not a typo! £36 GBP for a Leica R7!

    Yes it was in a sorry state and sold as such, but I took the gamble.
    Just had the camera fully repaired, serviced and restored with a 6 month warranty for £195 GBP.

    What a bargin... and what a lovely camera!!!

    Hi Pete,

    Enjoy the camera. I have had my R7 for some years now. Though the R8 is my favorite R series camera and the R4SP is my camera when I need the smallest size and weight along with 1/100 and B setting if the camera batteries fail, I do like the R7.
