Although I no longer have the receipt, I remember that it was in early Spring of 1969 (senior year high school) that I bought my Leicaflex SL. It cost me real money at the time $480 with a 50 mm Summicron.

It's taken me through Tri-x with Acufine, Kodachrome, home processed E-4 Ektachrome, HW ultrafine grain film, Agfachrome, Plus-x and my all time favorite, Panatomic-x printed on Agfa Portriga.

I went to one of my daughters' track meets on Saturday and took the camera with the big, old 180mm f2.8. The camera is very easy to focus and I got some great shots of the kids. Sad to say, with all the parents and all the cameras, it was the only film camera there. Oh well, used Tri-x in Acufine as still the best available...
