    Sirius Glass, what luck, I am an expert on half assed photography and have the prints to prove it!

    jnanian, sorry, it's a no go with the LTM too. Same problem as the M mount, not enough room for an adapter that will still let the lens reach infinity.

    X. Phot., good one. Still OK to photograph M42 with a M42 mount camera?
    I have never tried. Excellent! I love a good challenge.

    One more note.
    Over at Rangefinder Forum, under 'half frame', at the top of the page there is a sticky. It is a link to a monograph written by Peter Dechert that contains a wealth of information about the Pen F system. It is a free download in PDF format, one copy, personal use only. Just thought some of you folks might be interested.

    Welcome. I collected 1/2 frame cameras for some years decades ago when you could buy them all day long for a buck or two at the camera stores. They were being traded-in in droves. I had an almost complete collection of Olympus including the F, FT and FTV bodies. I found universally the Olympus lenses to be sending to none of the Japanese manufacturers. Finally a dealer wanted the collection and we struck a dealer.

    The Konica Autoreflex is a killer slr. I loved using it but every once in a while I forgot to advance the film after switching. It went with the collection and if it had not, it probably would still be my only 35mm slr system today.

    I had the Dial 35 in both the Canon and Bell & Howell badges. An interesting camera but with the winder being so large it sort of defeated the compact body size. The winders on these were a weak point and I saw many that could not be wound.

    Todat I still have a Konica AA-35 with the typical battery door issue. I can use it by taping the battery door shut. It is a very practical camera in that it is thin enough to actually be a shirt pocket camera. I had it put away and forgotten until only a short time ago when I happened across it. It is sitting out ready to be loaded and put back in service.

    It took me about two minutes to figure that out.

    I have two Bell & Howell Dial 35's, a Pen EE-2, A Konica Auto-Reflex, and a Mercury II (which is just slightly larger than half-frame). Half-frame is a lot of fun, but it takes me forever to finish a roll of film.

    I have a Tessina I haven't shot in years, got too expensive to get prints made as it's not exactly 1/2 frame. Now that I'm getting into developing I may get it out as I have the loader and numerous cassettes.
