Canon P, Leitz Summitar 5cm arrived yesterday. Both in KEH BGN condition. Negs from a quick roll of HP5 look good. I'm keeping it. Just ordered a lens hood, adapter and cap from heavystar on the big auction site.
My last purchace was a Canon Auto-up in 50mm 1.8 for $8.(the shipping cost $10.+change) After spending my pile-o-cash I'll start saving for more out of date film.Sounds like some good deals you folks found.
Just picked up a pretty Yashica Lynx 5000e for $25 on Craigslist. The lens had some fungus, fortunately only on the front surface; it came off easily. This camera has a Copal SV leaf shutter with a top speed of 1/1000th of a second. Nice! I have no idea if the meter works since I have no batteries for it, but the camera is otherwise working well. Can't wait to put some film through it.
Well done, your first RF? She looks in good condition too.
Yes, she's in great nick. Not my first rangefinder though, just my first M. Used to own a R3a. Currently own a Epson R-D1 and Mamiya 7, both used regularly. Time to see what all the fuss is about. Some from my first film. Taken in the Frankfurt Modern Art gallery.
I recently picked up a reasonably priced M2-R from eBay and had Youxin Ye check it out. After a CLA he said it hasn't been used much and it's ready to go for the next 30 years! Lovely camera with exactly the same framelines as my MP3.
