    Hey, I just realized that the Koni-Omega Rapid M is a rangefinder that should qualify for discussion here. The fact that it consumes 120 or 220 roll film just means that it also fits in the Medium Format Category too.

    Just last week a Koni-Omega Hexanon 4.5/180mm lens came for the camera body. Now I have the 58mm, 90mm, and the 180mm lenses for it. Having a complete system is nice.
    Enjoy;

    new to me Olympus XA

    I need to replace the foam and then would be interested in trading it for Kiev/Contax RF stuff... the Helios 103 is only $36 NOS so that should be in the ballpark.... or an 85 Sonnar...

    Royal 35-M. Sweet to look at and in use. Even the meter works!

    Good morning, David;

    Yes, sir, you are correct, and, yes, the Omegon 3.5/135mm lens is not common, and is listed mainly in the brochures and in the early manuals that also show the Omegon 5.6/58mm Wide Angle lens. The later version is the 5.6/60mm WA lens, which may actually be the same lens with a slightly different label.

    I probably could have prevented any confusion by just saying that I have completed my selection of lenses for the Koni-Omega Rapid-M, rather than saying that I have a complete selection. I had already decided that I would just go with the 5.6/58mm, the 3.5/90mm, and the 4.5/180mm lenses, so for me, my selection was complete.

    In any case, now the K-O Hexanon 4.5/180mm lens is here also, and I am very happy to have finished my K-O kit. Well, almost. Now there is a need for the "Blue Top" lens case for storing the lens when it is not on the camera. GAS and a known addiction to cameras is such a burden to bear.
    Enjoy;

    Ralph:

    Glad you are enjoying the Koni-Omegas.

    Should I apologize for enabling?

    Sorry I sounded like a smart-aleck as they say in my country (actually they say smart-arse) I also have the K-O 100 and 200 but only the 60 and 90. I briefly had an extreme GAS attack for the Omega TLR which was a BEAST... But the threat of having to live in the garden shed (how could you possibly sneak one in the house?) cured me.

    This is pretty. Is that flip-down cover over the meter for metering in low light?

    Most older selenium meters had two ranges, the outdoor range where you would use the meter with the cover down and the low light range, cover raised. Some meters like the Leica/metrawatt would have a slot for an extra selenium cell to increase accuracy in very low light.

    Never did like the Leica meters because they scratched $1000's off the value of the camera

    My first foray into the world of the Rangefinders :-) I found a `demoed` once Nikon Y2k S3 (chrome) c/w 5cm f1.4 and a mint (no `cleaning` marks) 10.5cm f2.5 tele. Now starts the long learning curve!

    After my F6, the `squinty` viewfinder is going to take some getting used to and as I wear glasses I find that the bright-lines and rangefinder patch are impossible to see in some lighting conditions and angles.

    So little time, so much to learn!

    Roger
