    I just now got home from a local thrift store, where I found a nice, working Minolta SRT 201 with the MD Rokkor-X 45/2 pancake for $4.00.

    these I bought at yard/estate sales for reasonable prices: the M3 DS with a mint 50/2 collapsible Summicron $450. the Contax IIa color dial with a 50 f1.5 sonnar also mint $75 the Kodak stereo Brownie 2a(a truly rare Brownie one of 4000 made, this one is of the first 1000, dates 1904) $25. the polaroid 110a $15 >the Thornton Pickard shutter $1 The Visoflex with 65 Canadian Elmar $150 a C Simlar collapsible 50 f/3.5 $20 Couldn't find the Leotax to go with it, but there was a leotax body cap. not pictured a Rollei 35S German $30, an Olympus XA $3, A miranda sensorex $20 a perfex 55 $5, a visoflex I with bellows and slide duplicator, valoy ii with focotar 4.5 $10.

    The places to go are older neighborhoods where engineers lived.
    ideally ones who were posted by the military to Germany or Japan in the 1950-s

    Last week I picked up a Nikon Coolscan IV with the box/manual/cd/accessories for $75 from craigslist. This thing kicks the crap out of my Epson flatbed.

    Good news on my Minolta: Both lenses and the teleconverter are free of fungus. When I got some decent light on 'em and went to clean them, I found that the dreaded threads were actually what appeared to be stringy paper lint. There's a touch of dust on the inside, but it isn't nearly as horrible as I'd feared. I LOVE this viewfinder!
    Just loaded it with some film, and I'll be testing it tomorrow.

    This was a gift from an acquaintance of ours, not a garage sale find: I was just given last night a near-mint Fuji Fujica Compact 35 with original instruction booklet and a 3-roll x-ray protector for film. I haven't had the camera out in sunlight yet, but its selenium light meter appears to be working and all seems to be in working order.

    I picked up a Canon Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens for $20 at Goodwill. Added batteries and film and it was ready to go.

    My best pickup was a gaggle of stuff from a 'studio closing' sale last spring, I got some well worn but functional light stands, umbrella swivels and odds and ends, the crown jewels were a Nikon 35/1.4 AI-s (aperture diaphram not functioning) and a Nikon 105/2.5 factory Ai-d (shattered red#25 filter stuck on). Add on a cool Nikon Lens-Scope Converter and the whole lot was $105...

    $140 later the 35/1.4 was fixed and CLA'd, I got the filter of the 105/2.5 myself and found it otherwise fully functional, and I sold the Scope Converter for $350! I've gotten a TON of use out of the 35 and 105 combo on my FM2 and the light stands have been invaluable.

    I probably won't see another one like that in the near future but I'll be looking!
