    Just got a Minolta Hi-Matic 9 in the mail 4 days ago. Did some work rebuilding a buddies camera and that was the trade. Seems pretty cool. I love these things, they are great instructional cameras.

    Leica M4-2

    A Leica M4-2, made in 1979 I think that I am going to like it.

    My most recent RF purchase, which I announced in this thread, had today its first foray in the field, and it already lost the "glass" covering the frame counter. True, I went to the city centre with my motorbike, but I did package the stuff with the usual maniacal excess of precaution. My Minolta X-700 did not suffer any damage. Bessa-L really seem to be cheap cameras with a limited life expectancy. I'll wait for its life cycle to be completed and then substitute it with a Leica III, I say.

    My Karomat has "evaporated".... An update.

    I'm afraid I'm becoming a collector....

    I've just ordered an Agfa Ansco Karomat with the f2 Schneider Xenon lens, in a Compur MX shutter. At the price I paid I could hardly let it pass; that's my story and I'm sticking to it!


    Well, it seems the vendor's computer system had a glitch. The camera had been sold a week before I ordered it, but the site hadn't been updated. A full refund with apologies, but I'd been looking forward to the camera. Waaaaah!

    Most-used RF!

    My last rangefinder purchase was a 1950s Contax IIa with Sonnar f2 50mm lens. I bought it about 4 years ago and use it often. It takes great photos, and I've been lucky as the shutter still works fine (fingers crossed!).

    Sorry to hear! That f2 lens sound amazing. If you find another be sure to let us know.

    Although I'm slowly moving away from 35mm, this was a deal I couldn't walk away from. This past Memorial Day weekend I purchased (from an antique store) a Canon IV-S2 (IV-SB), 50/1.8 Canon, 35/2.8 Canon w/ Canon viewfinder, 85/2 Nikkor-P.C, 135/3.5 Nikkor-Q.C, Canon Universal Viewfinder (35-135), Canon Auto-Up I, Canon cable release, Hansa cable release and a few other goodies. All had the correct leather cases while the lenses also had the correct caps and lens shades. Everything seems to work just fine. Will soon be shooting film with it all to confirm.

    Was looking for a RF camera and in my travels I came across a Rollei 35 S with the 40mm f/2.8 lens. I liked the look and feel of it at the time but now regretting the purchase (size & set-up of controls). I'll wait for a bit and maybe fall in love ;o) I sure am impressed with the photographs it does though.
