    Ordered a Jupiter-8 for my poor Canon III from Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine. I'm feeling lucky. Maybe it will have several fat bubbles in the glass.

    I found an M4-P and I have been thinking about getting it HMMmmmmmm (body only)
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    I bought a Canon QL19, works well, but doesn't fit my hands well. A week later I found an Olympus 35UC which feels right - and I got it out of a "junk" bin for 1,000 yen (about $13). Works great.

    I just got a 35 SP from the local auction house, apparently a bit scarce and the 7 element 1.7 Zuiko lens has quite a reputation.
    Near mint cosmetically although shutter appears to be jammed
    Bill, I got it repaired at Luton Cameras, who are Olympus specialists;

    They did a very good job.

    Picked up a Kiev 4a and three J8s for it. I'll sell two of them in the near future. I overpaid - $95 for the set - but the camera seems to be in good condition so I'm okay with it.

    I've had an itch to try a camera like this since stumbling across a Contax III that needed repair. I sold it as getting it working was beyond my means but not before getting a sense of how it felt in my hands.

    Have an Olympus RC coming from a member here on APUG. This was originally the rangefinder I was looking for. Photos look real nice, and it's fully functional. Hopefully was sent out today. Really looking forward to getting this.Should make a nice carry camera. It will be my first rangefinder.

    Also ended up winning an auction for a Yashica Electro 35 GSN. New light seals and recent CLA, in near mint condition. Photos looked great. 14 day inspection period, advertised as fully functional with bright finder and accurate focusing. Includes the Yashica Guy's battery adapter and a new battery. It also is on it's way.

    I've done it again, gotten too many irons in the fire and end up with two cameras when I only intended to buy one. :-) No one else does that I'm sure!!!!

    You should like the GSN I have a GS with the telephoto and wide angle adapter with the view finder and it takes great pics. If you don't want to use the battery adapter the correct battery can be had for about 7USD, it is an A32/A164 6v alkaline and can be found online.
