LBA at Camera Swap

I just returned from a local camera swap, where I found some great bargains on lenses I didn't really need

I picked up these along with some film bodies, filters, caps, etc:
RMC Tokina 28/2.8
SMC Takumar 35/3.5
SMC Takumar 50/1.4 - a bit banged up (but takes lovely pics)
SMC Takumar 55/1.8
EBC Fujinon 55/1.8 - which doesn't fully fit yet but can probably be McGyver-ed to work

I already had the M 50/1.4 and the M 50/1.7 from before and have way too many 50s now ...

Well, the total including two beautiful Praktica and Fujica bodies (they came with some of these lenses) was $72.

I've put up some quick test shots with the damaged Tak 50/1.4 HERE (posted on another forum as I didn't want to cross-post the same thing here)

Oh man, I was thinking of going but had to help out at home because we had some people visiting that evening.

Would love to try and organize something for next year's Vancouver Camera Swap Meet though!

Yes, the next one is in Burnaby, I believe, but not sure of the month. They had flyers posted, but I forgot all of the info already ...

If you organize something, let me know. We should have our own Pentax Vancouver swap and trade though!

That Tokina does a pretty good job - congrats on the collection.

I hear the Tokina is good, yes ... but I can't for the life of me stop it down at all. For the record, It's an RMC Tokina II model lens. Anyone have any tips?

The 2008 Vancouver Camera Show and Swap Meet was in April so I'm assuming sometime in the spring?

Another swap meet done and scored some real bargains. 5 lenses for $50!

I actually got a table at this one and sold some stuff.

If you're in the Vancouver area, come check out the one in April at Lougheed Mall.
