Op Shop Bargain Bonanza

You may know them as charity or thrift stores. My friend and I did the weekly shop and I had decided to do a little camera display for myself of old(ish) Pentax cameras. Well, 5 op shops later I had 9 film cameras for a grand total of $24. At the last I joked that if I found a Nikon I would be happy. Well I did, an L35 AF with original case and immaculate apart from need of a good clean. Cost? $1.50. Minimum going price for this intro point and shoot Nikon? $160!

Also a Minolta Hi Matic 7S
Konika C35

Both in original cases. Nice day!

Great treasure haul. Never know what you will find. Thanks for reminding me to check the shops.
thanks for sharing

As I remember it that Nikon had a sharp 2.8 lens on it.
