I see the Rectaflex add off to the side...probably the most unfortunate camera name ever.
I was thinking the same thing.

Bit different gear porn. I did some shopping while I was in Japan, unfortunately I didn't get the opportunity to take photos. I was thinking about getting a pentax 6x7, but I managed to resist... so far. Instead I got this loot, I'm pretty happy with it, I'm going there again in January to restock. Hopefully I will get more Neopan/Presto 400 and Pro 160NS before they are gone. Also few different japan only Fuji developers.

I have to say, going there for an Aussie it was like being in a mecca of film.
Oh the Natura film!

That XD11 is absolutely drop dead sexy. I had to settle for a EX condition silver body from KEH. If you ever want to sell it let me know. I'll pay more than the other guy.

I have a K1000 but it doesn't have the Asahi at the top. I've had four in my life time of Pentax cameras. My original one I got when I started college in 1992 had the Asahi label on it. I miss that camera. I won't post photos of my gear though. I have a newer camera, film though it is a, MZ-7 I've only used twice.

My lens gear I have only one 50mm, a 1:2 M Pentax of course.

I love reading this thread and seeing cameras I only remember dreaming about owning. The older cameras, like Hasselblad and the twin lens reflex ones. Thanks for sharing your gear.

Ok I admit it, I'm having a spell of GAS (gear aquisition syndrome) again.

My only excuse is that there is a Pentax among them (albeit a tiny one):

And last (but not least) at least for now...

Voigtlander Vitessa, Ultron 50mm f/2
This is the type A3, nicest of the bunch Imo: first model to have automatic paralax correction and the last one without a fixed accesory shoe, which kind of spoils the clean lines of the camera.

Shot a first roll of color film with it yesterday, waiting for the results...
