I'm sure I've said this before but seeing stuff I only dreamed of owning 20 years ago going on ebay for peanuts is like being a kid in a candy shop (wait did I say 20 years ago, more like 30!)

I can remember like it was yesterday the day the 28mm/2.8 Nikkor I saved my pennies for arrived. It cost me $201 from a mail order place in Skokie Ill.
This was a kings ransom for a guy in the military making $368 a month!

Even though I rarely shoot 35mm it is very dangerous for me to look at Nikon auctions!
