    Just picked up a Yashica Mat-124 and a -124G. My first foray into medium format, I have 5 rolls of Tri-X 400 on the way.

    This week I finally found it after a loooong time. Mint conditions, like new, w boxes & strap. 12 months warranty and user manual in my language. Traded for some old folders.

    All I really use is prime lenses. I think I have every PS lens from 180mm on down. These are hard to find as this is the SQAi version. Tamron developed these zooms just in time for Bronica to go broke. It looks really cool, The price was right what the heck. 90% of what I do is with the 80mm f 2.8 .

    Good Lord, what a catch! Those are amazing. Mamiya really had a winner with the 6 and the 7.


    I sense you should get another Nikon. You know, just for a backup.

    IMG_1615.JPG IMG_1616.JPG IMG_1618.JPG Two sisters, very late serial numbers. This (late) six elements Xenotar is quite rare as they're predated by camera collectors. While the planar one was mint, the xenotar one has been well used.

    Fabulous cameras! But a 6-element Xenotar? I read years ago that the Planar 3.5 was changed to a 6-element version but the 3.5 Xenotar remained a 5-element. I have a 1959 3.5E with Xenotar - quite remarkable with Panatomic-X. Cheers.

    One view : The six element lenses (Planar and Xenotar) were introduced with the Rolleiflex 3,5 F, type 3 (?) ... I'm not quite sure about ... :wondering:
    An other view (interesting read) : http://www.rolleiclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4

    Contax G2. Lovely, but not sure it fits my shooting style.

    Planars and Xenotars were upgraded to a six elements design around/after camera's serial number 2.800.000 (planar) and 2.200.000 (xenotar)

    Pentax 67 outfit, this thing is a beast! I have 45mm, 75mm and 150mm lenses, the original cases for the lenses and a decent set of filters. This camera was owned by a pro who had a contract with the US Army Corps of Engineers to document their work. It spent most of its working life photographing the Mississippi River from a Huey helicopter.

    I ran my first film through this weekend, it seems to work just as it should. The only issue is the meter coupling chain, it is unfortunately broken. Not a big deal since I have very few cameras with light meters but I will replace it as soon as I can.

    Along with a paramender and some other miscellaneous stuff. From an ill friend who has decided he just can't do film photography any more. It's all immaculate and the shutter speeds agree with lenses that have been recently CLA'd. He just wants to know that somebody will be using it. The 80mm and 135mm and my now extra backup C33 body will go to my son-in-law, inactive apugger laostyle17, as a Christmas gift this year.

    A friend recently decided he was not ever going to shoot film again and gave me his old outfits.

    First a Minolta X-370 with three lenses which will join my ever-growing Minolta army. Not a body I ever would have looked for, but one I’ll enjoy shooting nonetheless.

    Then his Nikon outfit: an FM2 and an F3 HP with 24,35,50&135 primes.

    I’m pretty excited to play with my new toys!

    My Minolta army has a X-370 in it, too. I really do enjoy shooting it and don't miss anything it doesn't have compared to the X-570 and X-700.

    Wow, nice Mamiya TLR kit!! I borrowed a 220 from a friend earlier this year and must say that it was easy to use, if a bit bulky. The 55mm lens had haze and flared badly, but a cleaning would fix that issue. Here is an example from Panther Burn, Mississippi, taken on long-expired Tri-X professional film (the ISO 320 emulsion). These were students from Illinois with their mothers' ashes. The mothers had been part of the African-American diaspora of the 1950s and 1960s. But ultimately, I could not control my GAS and bought a used Hasselblad instead. Mr. Sirius, who often writes, will be thrilled.

    A Minolta HiMatic AF2.
    For some strange reason I like these early af cameras, this one is in nice condition and appears to work.

    Cooking up some FM2n...

    Anyway, I think I found a suitable replacement for the FM2n that I traded away many years ago. A black paint shipping pallet mate of that body. Manufactured during the same 30 day time period as my first (November 1985). Got it from a camera shop in Michigan for $200 shipped. It, like my F2AS and my F, is a keeper.

    Only other recent body acquisitions have been a "boomerang" camera that was originally offered here on APUG (a Nikkormat FT3) which I've remembered why I got rid of it (meter's unuseable), an F3HP that's nice, but I have my heart set on another F3P body instead, and my DPUG body, a D3 that I picked up for $575 locally at the beginning of November. Still have the F2AS that I've owned since September 2011, and the F that I picked up earlier this year.
