    Yes! that exhibit looks awesome, I've been interested in her ever since I saw a post about her body of work, and that tv news clip. Should be cool, I'll send you a pm or facebook message to figure out a time that your free to go. I can always go before work, but the gallery closes before I get out. thanks for the head up about this! Im sure fellow apuger's would like to see her work too! You should post this to the Manhattan meetup group!

    My best garage sale finds were all made about 20 years ago.

    At the time, M42 lenses were so unfashionable no one wanted them and most camera shops in the UK refused to deal with them. I bought six Carl Zeiss lenses for £19 each. These were from different sources, £19 sounds better that £20 I guess and seemed to be the standard price.

    Just recently I managed to sell these on eBay for over £100 each. Suddenly everyone wants a Carl Zeiss Sonnar or Flektagon and M42 are the most popular, as they are the easiest to get a mount for. One Flektagon went for £180.

    Bizarre thing is, for every lens I have that is badged as 'Carl Zeiss' - I have an identical one badged 'Pentacon'. Whilst we all know they are essentially the same thing - on eBay anything Pentacon is almost worthless...

    Well I didn't know that, maybe I'll pick up some Pentacon lenses now

    edit: just looked at some sample pics from the 200mm f4, that is some serious bokeh...

    Sirius Bokeh comes from Sirius Glass, go figure.

    Just picked up a Nikon N90s for $25! Came with the original owners manual and a magic lantern guide.

    picked up a new toy for pocket change...came in Nikon mount (for my FE2) and since I had Nikon adapters for my Canon Dslr...well....

    Appears to be soft on one side...well both sides but moreso at the right (bottom) of frame...will try another adapter, though I doubt I'll see any improvement...

    still, a nice toy...

    Today in a charity shop, I bought a 24mm f2.8 Auto Makinon lens in M42 mount. Nothing particularly special but for £6.50, it would be rude not to buy it!

    Like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISA...3#ht_484wt_754 but 1/10 of the price!

    Picked up a Exakta VX with C.Z. Jena Biotar 58mm f/2.8 lens this morning at a local yard sale for $10. This camera has the old style front face with modern pc outlets.

    Everything works with no damage to the curtains and the glass cleaned up nice..

    Time to take it out for a test run...........
