    Just got my Bessa R3A last night, and a 135mm finder. Still waiting on the 135mm lens (they were accidentally shipped apart, apparently), but i've loaded up some TMAX 400 and whacked on my 21mm Skopar and yellow filter, going to shoot a test roll around town tonight...

    +1 for the Mamiya 7ii with 80mm lens. Still trying to sort out the diopter for the viewfinder window, though.

    Picked up a Nikon S. It included the owner's manual and a few other items. This replaces the one that I sold a few years ago.

    I am a happy owner of a cannonet 1961. I just got it from an antiquaire here in Mali, West Africa gor $2 US. the camera seems to work fine but i still didn't load film. I am first trying to learn how it works. After some hours I know how to open the film door. so advice are needed. I am loving this camera. it is built like a tank. Nothing to compare with my Sony Alpha a550.

    Found a reasonably good deal on the hood for my Canon 50mm f/1.2 LTM lens. Now the camera/lens combo doesn't instantly fall forward when I set it down on a flat surface like it wanted to do with the generic hood. Not sure how I'll justify taking the darn thing out in the field though...given the small chance of finding another at a decent price.

    Bought a Zeiss Ikon S 312, which required a lot of work. It's running nicely now.

    My most recent rangefinder is plural. Rangefinders

    Had a GAS attack!

    I've always used SLRs — and snobbishly! They were always Contax/Yashica although I did have a Spotmatic for a little while as well.

    But when I got a Contax IIa with the F2 Sonnar at a local vintage store and put a roll through it, the whisper-quiet pleasure of using rangefinders washed over me in an awesome (and financially detrimental) wave.

    Here's one with the Contax and Sonnar (and a warm skylight 1B filter, the look of which I love)

    Kiev IIa with what may be its original Jupiter-8, both 1956. I enjoy using this camera as much as the Contax. Build quality is superb and the size may fit my hands even better.

    These are from my Retina IIIc with Xenon f2. They don't show its full potential but they show its usefulness in low light. I have some in color, taken outdoors, that are as sharp as my Planar and Distagon.

    And the post would not be complete without a selfy — this one's at F8 on the Agfa Vista

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice collection and nice photos, too. Did you have to do any work on the Agfa Karat 36? Kodak put very high quality lenses on thr Retinas.

    Thanks, Elek!

    I did do a little to the Karat. The focus was stiff so I used lighter fluid and a Q-tip on the helical and it loosened up a bit after about 30 minutes of this. It's still not perfect. The lens was dirty and dusty, so I cleaned it. And the aperture/shutter blades had grease on them after I cleaned the helical, so I spent about another hour with the lighter fluid and Q-tip cleaning the blades and running through all the shutter speeds. It seems to work at all shutter speeds now, but the slow ones sound slow. I plan to send it off for a CLA before too long.
