I paid 125 for my Pentax M 85mm f/2 and I consider that cheap...
I lucked out for a change. My local second store, which doesn't normally under-price stuff, sold me a M85/2 and a M20/4 for 95 each. I was pleased...

I was not planning on buying this, but...



(It's the 2-1/4 x 3-1/4 model, so I won't be shooting any sheet film with it, but it also has the 6x9 roll film holder.)

I am a very happy camper - I picked up this beautiful A35/2 lens for just 75 this weekend in a secondhand shop.

6x6x6

A roll came back, and I had taken this shot of my 6x6 cameras as a bit of a joke. Film is Eastman High Contrast motion picture stock, which is... interesting. Not only is it fairly slow, which means sharp and low grain, and (obviously) high contrast, it's also sensitized to blue but not yellow light. That last bit gave me some odd shots in the end, as parts of frames would be almost blown out even though they hadn't looked that way during shooting. (e.g. the back wall in this shot.)

They are, from left to right: a KW Pilot Super, a Meopta Flexaret IIa, IIIa, and Va, a Yashicaflex-A, and a Zeiss Ikon Nettar 517/16.



Canon AE-1.
Canon (new) FD 28mm f2.8.
Eastman High Contrast.

Well this should be fun It looks rough but the glass and screen are great, all the moving things move nicely, and a new skin is on it's way curtesy of Morgan.

Lucky find. That's barely more than I paid for my M version.

Nice camera. When I was a teenager, my photography mentor had one. Sheet film to fit is still available and cameras for that format are still being made.

Huh. Didn't know there was still sheet film for it. The local shops only carry 4x5.

I'll have to keep an eye out for a 2x3 Graflok holder then.
