    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!

    Not quite garage sale, but close enough - Nikon FA with motor drive and Vivitar Series 1 28-90mm for $50 and a Minolta 20mm f/2.8, TWO auto winder G's, one of which was new in box never opened (that conveniently fit the pristine X-570 I had recently bought for $50) and a black SRT-102 with 50mm f/1.7 for $160.

    Stopped by the local Habitat for Humanity store the other day and found a Nikon L35AF, with 1A filter, marked $2.00. When I took it to checkout, the clerk informed me it was on half-price sale. Except for a loose battery door, easily held shut with black electrical tape, it works perfectly.

    I found a couple of 50s....Olympus 1.8 and SMC Pentax 1.7 cheap because of a bit of fungus and and lens separation residue....for $3 a lens I had to see what they could do....

    I look forward to testing them to see how much that might affect IQ...

    Ron, I gotta make some trips out to Long Island, those deals are always incredible! But I fear I would be knee deep in gear lol!
