    Lovely Leica CL arrived this morning. What a joy to use - fits into the hand. Could do with a dioptre as my right eye is not great but it focuses perfectly. I can see this becoming my everyday user camera.

    Traded a digital-only (Yuck!) Nikon lens for a LTM Jupiter 12 with cap, vented hood and a Leitz M39-M adapter. Now, I just need a camera to put it on...

    It's been a while since I've dropped in here. Since then, I've picked up a Canon QL-17 GIII with the "dedicated" Canolite D flash in good working order, an Olympus Trip 35 that is also in good shape, and two lenses -- a 100mm f/4 Serenar and a 135mm f/3.5 Kyoei -- for my Canon IIIa rangefinder. I've been having quite a bit of fun with all three.

    No Ancso Karomat but a Vitessa L

    Well, the Karomat evaporated, but I have on order a Voigtlander Vitessa L with case. This has been an object of my photo lust for many years. Here's a link about it: http://www.cameraquest.com/voitvitl.htm

    It should make a fine street camera.

    No Ancso Karomat but a Vitessa L Update

    The Vitessa L arrived yesterday and looks GOOD! Lens is clean, no visable marks, rangefinder clear, bright patch, body has one small dent and a very few flaws in the chrome. Shutter sounds right. The selenium meter even works, mirabile dictu!!

    It came with a nice everready case in fine condition. I'm running some Kentmere 100 through it to check focus accuracy, etc, although given its cosmetic condition I imagine that all is well.

    One little oddity: with the plunger film advance mounting a flash in the shoe is a problem; the flash fouls the plunger. I'll have to come up with a bracket, or an extender to mount the flash higher, not a bad idea to avoid red eye. I'm a happy camper!

    I already posted it in the "new 35mm" section, but I picked up a minty fresh GIII QL17 a couple days ago. Dead battery and the
    sticky shutter, but the light seals are still in pretty good shape and the glass looks good... so it oughta be fixable into a really nice
    little go-everywhere camera.

    I bought a 21mm lens for my Contax G2 the other week.

    Vitessa L update

    I've run a test roll of Kentmere 100 through the Vitessa, all looks good. The rangefinder seems accurate, shutter speeds within film latitude - 1 sec sounds a little slow. And that Ultron is sharp!

    The meter seems to overexpose a little, but I've got some handheld meters. A Norwood Director I picked up with case for a few dollars would be just right to complete the '50s look. Now I need a '57 Chevy BelAir convertible....
