Some of the cameras I own or have owned.

This collage is made up of all the cameras I currently have photos of. Some of these I no longer own, and I'm missing a few photos of cameras I currently own or used to own.
I have shot at least 1 roll of film with every camera here (other than the few digitals there), many of them have seen 5 or more rolls of film in my use.
If I haven't overlooked anything (though I am on a smallish screen), there is not a single Nikon in the bunch, except the lens on your Bronica S2(A?). I am the same way -- no Nikon cameras or 35 mm glass; only two Nikkor lenses with my S2. Anyway, beautiful bunch of kit, with the kind of Pentax overrepresentation that one would expect on a Pentax forum.

My only Nikon gear is a SP rangefinder with 50mm f/1.4.

It was all sadly downhill after that.

I've actually owed and used an FE, FE2, FM, and a Nikkormat EL.
I used the FE the most and I really liked it. I still own a FM but I have no F mount lenses
For some reason, I didn't get any photos of my Nikon stuff.

I think that KX deserves to go for a walk tomorrow.

Pr0n0-th0n ... actually I'm doing some inventory and documentation of my small collection ...

Tak's = SupTak 28/3.5, SMC Tak 35/3.5 (both with case & caps) and a yellowed SupTak 55/1.8



A's
= SMC A 50/1.7, SMC A 35-70/3.5-4.5, SMC A 35-105/3.5, A 70-200/4 (non SMC - el cheapo swap meet) and a Tak A 28-80/3.5-4.5 (a thrift store acquisition)



And here's a shot of my big "M"s, now with the forgotten M 135/3.5 included ...

I, for one, welcome our new soviet overlords. They aren't invading, they're liberating the M42 mount from japanese occupation.

(I hope, they'll forgive me for selling my Helios 40-2)

Yep, I have a great thrift shop nearby ... at 2 each, stand alone (or 5 to 7 with a working Zenith attached), it's hard to pass up, even a slightly defective one ... the 44-2's never fail ...

Only 2 came from a swap meet, a 44M and a 44M-4 ... both in super shape ... J
