First it was a Yashica TL Electro and then 2 days ago I ran across a nice chrome Nikon FE with a Nikkor-S 35/2.8 attached
Yes, I am with Jussi...those are pretty irresistible. I was sorely tempted by a black FE2 a couple of weeks back and saw a mint TL Electro-X on the shelf a few days ago. The Yashica would have gone out the door with me except that I already have two M42 bodies that get no love as it is. I may yet see if I can make a deal on the FE2, the tough thing there is that it was body only and Nikon lens prices are high.

No kidding, especially for anything that's AI and isn't Series E. I lucked out with my FE having a Nikkor-S 35/2.8 attached but I would love to get a Nikkor AI 35/2.8 so I could use the aperture priority AE.
I've been wanting an FE2 for sometime now. Looks like a pretty sweet camera.

Here's a shot from the test roll through my FE.

I am in the same boat! Keep looking at different film cameras that are interested. Just yesterday almost bought an Olympic Trip 35 locally, unfortunately the selenium cell meter is dead and the camera with no manual override, a separate handheld light meter would not help. I am intrigued by this fully-automatic, point and shoot little camera and with simple zone-focusing for street photography.

Sweet result! Through careful and patient shopping I've managed to pay bottom feeder dollars for my Nikkors - the 24 for example is a David White Ai'd lens, I miss the better coating but not the dollars

If I'd got smarter sooner I'd have gone Minolta sooner - the whole idea is to buy lenses that are non-sanely priced in Pentax - the wider and faster wides especially for me. And this constant aperture 35-70 - you can't get quality like this for anywhere near the price, except with a Tamron adaptall.

Which is about the only way I can afford to go into Nikon country! Good point regarding Minolta. I should see if I can tempt my daughter into giving me back the XG-M that I gave her back back when she was taking photography in high school. I could use the ruse that the seals need changing...

Very cool photo. It took me a bit to figure out what I was looking at.

This film is at least ten years older or more. It's Agfa HDC iso200. I kept it mostly in the freezer all those years but this last year and a half it's been in the refrigerator.
I used a Pentax Program Plus and motor drive with either a Vivitar series one 70-210 f3.5 or a 28-105 . I scanned the photos with a Lexmarkx5470 All in One
scanner.

Those are some nice shots, but I believe they may be suffering from the "attached images" function on this forum. I found that my shots looked better when I linked to Flickr or another site.
