    Cheers - John
    And the results are great too, looks like a long term and fruitful relationship.

    Got very lucky and bought a Yashica 35, which looked terrible in the auction, but only needed some superficial cleaning up to make it look as good as it seems to work.

    A wonderful little Ansco Super Memar with the Solagon 50mm lens. Shot two rolls of film but no prints yet. Negs look great, under the loupe on the light table this is one sharp lens!

    Voigtlander Vitessa Victory!!

    After weeks - months - a long time looking I finally found on ebay the dedicated lens shade for my barndoor Voigtlander Vitessa L. While it was still more than I wanted to pay it does come with a leather case to hold it and three filters, which as Vitessa fans know are made of Unobtanium. And I have three of these little gems! Bwahahahaha.... [laughs hysterically and mumbles something about My Precious....]

    I finally got it !

    I do have to say that despite the opinion of
    Roger W. Hicks, I love the fact that the Contax G-2
    is considered a Rangefinder camera, for the purposes
    of this forum.
    I just got the Titanium Contax G-2 with a 35 - 70 mm zoom lens.

    I'm still in a state of shock, when I think about it.

    I bought it from my doctor. We had agreed on a price for the body alone.
    I had stated my intention in June 2011. I said that I would have the money
    for the body alone by Sept. We closed the deal, in the beginning of Dec.
    I told him that he could get more for it on eBay, but he said that this would
    be fine. " Anything to make the patient happy."

    I asked him to bring a lens with it so I can test both of them. He had
    previously told me that he only had the 45 & 90 mm lenses.
    I asked him to bring a body cap with him as I was buying a bare body.
    He said that he didn't have one. He then told me, that the camera was
    in his car & that not to worry, he would include the lens with the camera.

    When he walked in, I tried to identify the mounted lens, but I couldn't
    at first. When I picked up the body & lens, they felt heavier than I was
    used to. When I looked closely at the lens, I saw the zoom ring & I
    was floored. It was the desired 35 - 70 mm zoom lens. I couldn't
    test them because the batteries were dead.
    He had left the power switch on.

    I again reminded him that he could sell " this " on eBay, but he said
    that selling it to me was fine. He wanted someone else to enjoy it.
    He also said that if I had any trouble with it, I could return it for a
    Full Refund. I said Thank You & hurried out of his office.

    It had been sitting in a drawer & had gotten dusty. Also when I
    removed the lens from the body, there was this blue goo, that
    was all over the lens / body mount, but thankfully not on the
    lens elements, ( I think it's lube ).

    So now I need to send it to Tocad, for repair. Yes, I could return
    it, but will I ? Not on your life.

    eBay says that the camera by itself is worth between $400.00 - $600.00.
    The zoom lens is worth between $550.00 - $750.00. The combined value
    with a 200 flash which was also included is around $1,000.00, or so.

    Oh and how much did I pay for this complete kit ? $300.00 !

    MIRACLES STILL DO HAPPEN.

    Just won a clean looking uncoupled rangefinder Agfa Isolette over at shopgoodwill.com. Comes with a leather case. This is a late model Isolette III with the Solinar 75mm f/3.5 and synchro compur shutter. Can't say I stole it -- had to pay $90 for it, but from what I've read about this model so far, it compares very favorably with such greats as the Zeiss Super Ikontas. I would have preferred a coupled rangefinder, but oh well, can't have it all.
