Nice looking camera Steve.
Just yesterday I purchased a Super Program and A 35-105 on Ebay.
Can't wait to get it.

Thanks! I am looking forward to doing some shooting with it after I replace the seals.

A new addition to the fold...

I saw this Super Program (body only) on eBay and could not resist bidding on it as a companion to my A 50/1.7.

Steve
Nice addition!

Here are a few of the originals I've been able to collect over the last 2 years.

Here is my AP, which I am still trying to find a copy of the original lens. It came with a 135 Super Tak, which obviously is the wrong lens. It was an ebay purchase, which I had the seller ship directly to Eric for servicing. It ended up being in better shape than I had hoped, with Eric commenting that "this camera should be on display" in his receipt. If anyone knows of a 58/2.4, 58/2, or 55/2.2 Preset Takumar for sale, please let me know (especially if someone wants to trade for a 55mm Zebra). Here it is with the 83mm Takumar.



Here is the S, which is also in mint shape......



and my K, which was the reason I got into collecting these older models. I was so surprised at how modern it was and how nice it was to use.....the picture in my Avatar was taken with this camera.



I need to photograph my H2 and H3 (and soon to be H1), but I do have a shot of my S1a....

Such lovely cameras in here Have fun with the Super Programs, it's a really great camera. I liked mine so much that I bought one for my sister.

And tuco, awesome 67 gear. I have ordered a 67 just recently and hope to have it soon. I'm rather excited

I didn't realize the Super Program was such a popular camera.

I was just browsing keh.com the other day and keep seeing the price of 6x7 lenses going down. The the 6x7 Takumars look like a way to have a few lenses and not be too hard on the budget. My 6x7 lenses have been collected over a 20-year period.
