    the other two are a 1.7/50 rokkor-x and a 2.8/28mm (doesn't say rokkor in this one :-()

    Just bought a Kodak BW400cn at CVS to give it the first test run and check light seals etc...

    Congrats on a superb camera. I have two of them, a chrome one and a re-leathered black one. They've become some of my favorite cameras. You got a great deal at $100; KEH has chrome XD-11s w/50mm f/1.4 lenses, in "bargain" condition, going for $160. BTW, I've had pretty good luck with Celtics; they're pretty sharp in my experience.

    I am sure they are fine, the problem with this one is that the aperture ring doesn't open and close every time for every aperture, so I can not relay it will while taking pictures. I picked up last night and no apertures were moving, after a few times moving the lens around it worked from 3.5 to 11 and then nothing. I guess I could just used open at 3.5 all the time? This way I can test it, the other option is to as someone suggested open it up and learn how to fix it. Does anyone knows of a tutorial/repair manual for that?

    Great snag. And if anyone else reads this...

    If you have the opportunity to pick up a used Celtic 135, do so. And then use it to beat the hell out of your steaks before grilling. Because that's all they're worth. Congrats on the rest.
    Thank you.

    Great deal on the XD. What you paid was worth the camera - consider the rest a free bonus!
    The 50mm is good; the 28mm - is that a Minolta as well? It doesn't have to say ROKKOR - that was only for a certain market and time period that they printed that on their lenses. Man, this is making me itch to get some manual Minolta gear again (sold it all for Minolta AF gear). I loved that stuff. :-)
    Can't say much about the Celtic glass, though...don't sweat it. I had all ROKKOR-X glass lineup years ago.
    Best of luck with the new gear,
    Jed

    yeah, the 28 is a minolta, it doesn't say rokkor-x, I know the 24 is the way to go, but they sell for about $300, humm, I will just stay with the 28.

    To add one more I just picked up a MD Rokkor-X 45mm f2 Lens.Mint. for 9.99. I read it is really small, so it can be useful if I want to travel light.

    Yeah, I have that pancake lens (read: 45mm) on my XG-1's. They are great little lenses.
    Thank you.

    Great find! The lens probably needs a CLA to get the iris working.

    Having a second body is a good way to get the GAS flowing!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I also have a black X-300 a coworker gave me since he said he was going to get almost nothing on evilBay. It takes nice pictures, but the sound of the curtain is really loud, the XD-11 makes a really nice sound.

    Heh, yeah, that's almost a reason to own the XD. The Seiko shutter is gorgeous sounding. That smooooooth "fawump". :-)
