Our local swap is outdoors and not predictable. I've been looking for a nice Canonflex and Minolta SR2 and be happy to trade my plain prism F and FM2N for. Have you noticed if those show up there at all? Praktina FX is also something I am beginning to look for and probably more common there.
If you are really looking for these, I will keep my eyes open. I have not seen anything like these recently, but the Bièvres swap would be the best opportunity. There are sellers from the UK, Belgium, Germany, Holland and even some "Russians" or East block countries. Send me a PM, if you want .... Salut, J

I think my Minolta collection is pretty much complete now (only missing a Sony A7, I'm working on it...):



X-500 (with MD1 grip); XD (with eyepiece selector); 5° Spot attachment; Autometer IV F

MD 300-S tele converter; MD 200/2.8; MD 135/3.5; Vivitar S1 90/2.5; MD 85/2

MC 58/1.2; MC 50/1.4; MD 35/1.8; MC 28/2.5; MD 24/2.8


I'm still missing three of Minoltas greatest (MC 16/2.8, MC 21/2.8, MD 135/2) but those are too rare & expensive to consider (unless I find a real bargain of course...).
Now I'm off to turn the rest of my stuff into money.

Nice collection, Boris. The 58mm f1.2 looks mighty fine from where I'm sitting.

Lovely collection. I guess the eyepiece selector was just to work out what one needed? I cannot image you were intended to walk around with that attached all the time!

The 58/1.2 certainly stands out.

I prefer it from this angle:

Yeah, I suppose they could just have had one in every store... I spend ages looking for the right diopter when I stumbled upon this thing.

I'd prefer an XD-s but I don't exactly have much to complain about. (except: Why won't anyone sell me a MC21/2.8 for 30€ like my 58/1.2? The world is so unfair...)

Looks like you used all of your luck up when you bought the 58.

The Minolta fisheye is a very good lens indeed!

Oh, I know. I'd definitely get the Rokkor, if I felt a specific fisheye-need. For now, it's too expensive given that I'd use it very rarely (I'd go for the MC21 first...).

I'm trying to get rid of the nice but unused things, like this one:



It's in perfect working order and "J.H. Keyser" from Denkendorf seems to have taken good care of it.
I barely use my Minolta Autometer IV F though, this one's only decoration. (And I [EXPLETIVE DELETED] hate decoration...)

That's a nice hefty combination!
I had a chrome FTB before but I wonder if there is a black body FTB with the fat self timer lever?

You mean a 1st series (71-73) FTb in black? Yes I've seen then on ebay, however this lens is destined to the F-1 body I should receive soon this one came with a 50 mm f1.4 S.S.C., a reputable lens on its own.

See and raise.










BTW, this lens is for sale in the marketplace if any of my fellow gearheads are interested.

Very nice work and I actually like the more metallic version!

It may not fit my black XK or XE-7 but maybe it would look better on my SRT.

I think I have an SRT201 around somewhere. If I get a chance, I'll mount it and take some beauty shots of the combo.

I love looking at these film cameras, but I would doubt my ability to be able to use one!
