A nice condition Fuji GA645Zi to replace the one I regretted selling a couple of months ago. But this time, I don't have the GA Strobe so I'm reliant on the pop-up for the moment. I suppose I could take one of my Contax flash units and use it manually....which makes me think about acquiring a nice old Contax G1 (green label) and a lens....just wish I had the cash.
A Bessa-R in like-new condidtion (minus the box and instructions). I like it a lot, though it certainly feels like a good healthy fart would blow it apart. I haven't had much luck hand holding at at '30, which I can usually do reliably with my SLRs if I really concentrate on it. The viewfinder is excellent.

The latest Rangefinder camera I have bought just a couple of weeks ago is a fantastic, wonderful, long time desired Zeiss Contax IIIA.
I love rangefinder cameras and already own three Leicas (IIIC, M3 and M6) and a Nicca 5L, but the Contax is a very interesting and beautiful camera, nedless to say that Zeiss lenses are super. I am very happy for this new entry in my collection and would like to share it with you
North America just north of that sharp right turn North America makes on the Atlantic coast.
Picked up a second Zeiss Ikon Contessa LKE here on APUG! I haven't shot with a rangefinder in years, I forgot how much I actually liked using one, and also once I got back up to speed on using a rangefinder it became a lot easier. The only thing I don't really like is that the DOF is a bit deeper than I like at the maximum aperture of f/2.8. Seeing that I haven't used a rangefinder in almost 30 years I think I did alright with it.
