Thats a really good formula to remember. Is it universal?[COLOR="Silver"]
Yes, it works with everything. Cameras, lenses, guitars, bicycles...

You would bring up guitars when I've started itching to build another... I hardly have room to store them now. Maybe I should try an MX size guitar.

This is not one many would like to boast about, but I like it for its simplicity. No electrics, no light meter but also no interference from coupled speed and aperture rings. For a 2.8 lens, more than 4 elements just means more reflections. A 1960 model less costly than the Lynx models

I need to get a good film photo of it, but here's the first guitar I built.
The body is wood from a pallet that I found on a construction site I working on at the time. I think it's Red Oak and Live Oak.
The neck I bought pre-made from Warmoth Guitars because I didn't know enough to build my own neck.
It's got a Gotoh bridge and tailpiece, DiMarzzio humbuchers with series/parallel switching, and locking tuners.

I dunno, From personal experience, I think I discovered at some point during the zero-documentation rebuild of a Plaubel Makina 670 that I am currently in the midst of that there is an upper limit to this series.

Or perhaps it was when I filled that suitcase in my closet with Spotmatic SPs (all bought for the attached lenses, of course).

I had too many Hardy Perfect reels.
I had too many Winchesters.
I had too many OA flaps.
I don't have too many cameras or lenses. Yet.

Impressive! I'd love to see a colour photo of it, to see the colours in the woodwork.

I've probably shot at least 5 or 6 rolls through my new K and it's just a pleasure to use. I used to think the MX was special until I picked up a K. It's so minimalist, and I love it!

Good to see you using it. A lovely example. I have used my H2 but not my K yet. The SV is the final development of the S line, with a very smooth film advance.

Since you asked, and to keep in the context of this forum for camera gear pictures, here are two film SLRs 40 years apart: the AP-K, and Leica R8 (which also accepted a digital back) posed with three of my guitars. The mahogany one was the first I made, then a rosewood, and in front a koa body that I haven't gotten around to finishing. The Koa is all wood, even the bindings are Ebony.
