Love the Electro 35 with accessory lens and finder. I know the Program Plus is a good camera but do you seriously need four of them?

Just got this attached to a 50mm f/1.4 I purchased:

The body was in better condition than the lens actually, just need new seals and battery. I'm amazed on how clean the controls in this camera are. You basically just have exposure compensation to worry about, the rest is on the lens.

Photos taken with the mentioned 50mm f/1.4 on a K-x.

I got my ME with 50mm/1.7 from ebay 2 months ago and changed light seal yesterday. I like the camera because I shoot most of the time in Av mode.

That's a nice looking ME body! It was a similar purchase, a ME Super intended just as a lens cap, that had a lot to do with getting me hooked on film. Now I do maybe 90% of my photography with old Pentax film cams. My *istDL is on more or less permanent loan to a friend, and my K100D gets picked up only once in a great while, usually for a macro or something.

The M50/1.4 is a fine lens, too... (I assume it came with an M, but all the SMC 50s are excellent)

I just got this sweetie. It's going to CLA tomorrow. It seems to be fully functional so far.

All right it is not a Pentax but it is one of my favorite camera, just restored by Karl Bryan - the Autocord specialist.










Cheers,

Love the snakeskin treatment! Makes me wonder what I should do with my Yashica 635.

Thanks guys.
You can contact Cameraleather.com and ask Morgan about what custom option are available? Or find your own dead snake

Cheers,

You can skin, tan, and dye your own snake, but Morgan's kits are much easier.

I like the skin. And the camera looks in good shape. How do bay 1 Rollei filters fit? I tried putting mine on my buddies Autocord and they were a loose fit. My Rolleicord IV is in working condition but not in the best of shape. It needs a new focus matte (really yellow and dull) and I have to apply lighter fluid in the shutter mechanism often or it slows down. At f11 it will take a sharp shot but open it up and it really has soft corners which can be a feature, I guess I would really like to have a Rolleiflex with f2.8 viewing lens but those things just cost too much when I already have other MF cameras.
