Time for shots of my TLRs.
That's a nice selection, the Mamiya makes the others look so cute...

I only have one TLR but at least it's a nice one:


Oh well, I can only use one at a time anyway...

Terrible phone photo, but: found this at a local flea market. Probably not going to keep the body — it's a rebadged TX, and I already have two better FD-mount bodies — but it was priced low enough that it would have been a steal just for the lens, and that's what I wanted it for anyway.

I guess this would be soft core porn, or even an R rated movie, yet here it is... the latest two additions to my stable.

My new dedicated portrait lens; the Takumar 83mm f1.9. This baby weighs a hefty 326g and feels pretty solid on my '58 K. Should be a nice pairing with Delta 400 for indoor portraiture.

... and it's in an amazing shape--congratulations! Would it be impolite to ask how much you payed for it? Looking forward to your shots.

Beautiful, I see you got the hood for the K105/2.8 as well!

Impressive how clean it looks after all those years, cannot have been used a lot.
They don't show up often.

I'll comment that the Rollei is a fine walk-about camera that takes superb B&W from that waste-level "Rollei perspective." The Mamiya, IMHO, is a beast that is happiest atop a sturdy tripod. It's as heavy as some 4X5 press cameras, and somewhat clumsier to use hand-held.

I'd never heard of a Beautyflex. Entertaining choice of name! One day I'll treat myself to a Rolleiflex but it is hard to justify, really. I have a Yashicamat 124G and rarely use it.

I hadn't heard of the Beautyflex until I saw one for sale locally a couple of months ago and looked it up. Alas, this one had some kind of problem so I didn't buy it.

I had heard of a Beautyflex before, but I can't recall why. Perhaps because it was rebadged for other brands occasionally? (Or am I thinking of another TLR?)

Your Beautyflex is probably very similar to my Toyocaflex.
Different shutters. Does your Beautyflex have a Tri-Lausar viewing lens?

my Kodak Reflex II. Don't know how different the Anastar 80mm f3.5 is from the Anastigmat 80mm f3.5 on my original Kodak Reflex

Here's mine: Yashica-A. Takes lovely photos - there's something about triplet lenses that does it for me. Also worth mentioning is the Lubitel-2, which is a much smaller and lighter package, and gives much nicer results than its humble nature would suggest.
