Your ZX-5n was called the MZ-5n over here.

Hard to pick up on all the identical cameras sold under slightly different designations in different countries. Is this practice to keep track of where the camera bodies were to be sold? I recently learned that the very early Asahi Pentax I had, the Asahi Pentax "S" was sold elsewhere, I believe in So. Africa, as the "SB."

The SB was sold at Japanese military stores, it is the same as the Asahi Pentax S2, Honeywell H2 and in South Africa as Asahiflex H2. Not easy. The Asahi Pentax S was sold as Pentar in South Africa and in some other markets. It was also sold as Tower 26 via Sears.

Nah - I don't zoom these days. All I have left is my DA*50-135 and Vivitar Series-1 70-200mm pk mounts. And I use both extremely infrequently.
The kit I bought a while back with the 67 (and the reason I decided to "jump" in at the silly price the local guy offered it all at) landed me the camera plus a giant collection of filters, gobs of odds-n-ends, and these:
SMC 67 45/4.5 (mounted in the previous shot on the 645))
SMC 67 75/4.5
SMC 67 90/2.8
SMC 67 135/4.0 Macro and
SMC 67 165/2.8

I might sell the 135 - I never use it.
You've got the focal range covered
The FA 645 45-85mm zoom is a gem, and having AF is pretty sweet.

Here's a medium (645N) format view of my small format Pentaces:




(A couple of spare SF1's and an MZ-S aren't included.)

Taken with this lovely creature:

Shen Hao TFC 617-A OMG FTW!!!

The lens I already had, but this beastie wandered into the stable and I think I'll keep it, for a while at least. Came with 2 120 backs so I can swap color to b&w mid-roll. I'm just a wee bit excited about this one.

What a neat looking bit of kit.

Agreed the Shen Hao is an beautiful nostalgic representation of photographic equipment art- and one that has often tempted me over the years.

Nice view cameras.

My homemade wooden lens case for the lens shown. It's made from African Padauk and Glacier Maple.
