Want to share my experiences and learn from others too.
I'm not the type of posting many pics (if any at all).
BUT: Feel free to ask.

Will not be too often here because I'm in some other forums too (esp. german ones but sometimes dpreview and so on)

No - not my collection, but all slr that I had in my lifetime.
Still in use:
DS, K100D, Chinon CP6 (if I want to use film...) and my wife the Canon 400D.
Additionally the Sony S70 (my 1st digital) and R1.
The rest has been sold over the years.

As I mentioned: Additionally I had many different rangefinder, some medium format and Rollei & Seagull tlr.

Forgot to mention the other digital cameras that I just tried, Casio QV 4000 and Canon Powershot pro 90.

Some years ago I made a list of all lenses I ever had. It took 3 pages. Now it would take even more. So no list of all lenses I had and could share experiences with.
Lenses I use most often:

K 1.4/50
K 1.2/50
K 2.5/135
M 3.5/135
A 2.8/28
A 2.8/200
AF 18-55

Tamron (the manaul focus lenses in use with the Canon too)
AF 70-300 LD Di
2.8/90 macro
SP 2.5/90 macro
SP 60-300
SP 5.6/300

M42 (in use with both Pentax and Canon EOS)
Zenith 2.8/16
Vivitar 1.9/35
Jupiter 2.0/85
Meyer 2.8/100
Pentacon 2.8/135

Additionally some lenses I hardly use and those AF-lenses my wife uses with her 400D.
Just to give you a short view.....

Any other member from Germany and Hamburg here?

Welcome to the forum Paul. I'm not from Germany, but I know we do have other members from there.

Sounds like you have a lot of knowledge to share. Glad you are with us!
