Honestly, I do not know ... I don't count. Why?! Maybe a form of "plausible deniability" might be the best excuse ... so when my wife asks me that embarrassing question of "how many?", I can honestly reply that I do not know (exactly) ... I always tell her when I sell or trade away a lens, but I seem to forget to inform her about a lot of the replacement acquisitions ... oops J

Well. I was lucky, someone gave me a lot of camera gear. Including a Sigma 75-210 screw mount macro zoom with a good case, and a hardly used Practica, my first Praktica. Also, this Retinette 1B, a gem of a camera.
The LX, I bought of the Forum Market place, just serviced by Eric.

That looks in very nice condition for a 56 year old camera.

It almost looks as though it was never used. It seems to work perfectly as well.

It looks very solid. There is something that one gets from a metal camera that plastic just can't deliver.

Yep, that era of FSU rangefinders are pretty sturdy. That one looks to be in pretty immaculate condition.
