    This is where "starboard" and "port" start to really make sense .

    "Is there any port left?" (sorry, that's the way we were taught to tell the difference between starboard and port. )

    Cheers, and welcome to APUG.

    Thanks. I am looking at this with both fear and excitement. Apart from some Minolta AF lenses, this is the first time I have bought anything seriously old on ebay.

    Now, to find a SRT101 and then a X570 and then a.......

    Don't forget an XD-7 / XD-11. That one would be on my very short list of golden oldies, along with the SRT303 (aka SRT102 or SRT Super) - like the one that you just won. IMO it's a better package than the SRT-101. I sold one for a friend a while ago and kinda wish I'd given her some money and kept it for myself.

    Now, what to do with the Pentax SP500 kit that another friend wants me to get rid of for him...

    I got a Minolta XE-1 recently. Also called the XE-7 in the US and just XE in some other places. It's half way between the SRT and XD in my opinion as it has metering with aperture priority auto but retains the older styling. I don't like the 'more modern' styling of the XD series (20+ years old being more modern to me!).

    The early XD has a more traditional Minolta look than the later ones - the last one even has the 'new' Minolta logo. Heresy!!! I love 'em all anyway, but ya just gotta know when to stop!!!

    Just because you know when to stop doesn't mean you have to stop.

    Having said that, I tried to count up all of my film cameras yesterday. I think it came to thirty five. Perhaps I'm at that stopping point.... nearly.

    I think you're well past stopping point already - you should send me your XE-1 immediately, unless you have one of those new-fangled XD-11 things stashed away somewhere that you can send instead (or as well)

    It's your only hope of a cure for GAS.
