Small world, I guess ... I came across this at my thrift store last week and snagged it for 4€ (written upside-down on the camera back) ... a "Cosinon Auto F=1.4 f=55" which was cosmetically and optically great but the helicoid was like rubbing two pieces of 80 grit sandpaper together. I have opened it and fixed that, but I need to go back in again to clean up a bit of oil on the blades. It works fine in "M", but will not completely return to wide open in "A" mode. The Ifbaflex T1000 body will not fire (but it will wind) and the timer seems jammed, so into the "spares box" for maybe later.

This Cosina looks a lot like my other Tomioka possible lenses ... that being an "Auto Chinon 55/1.4", an "Auto Rikenon 55/1.4" and an "Universon 55/1.4" which looks exactly the same as the Rikenon. I will have to get them all out together for a comparison ... cheers, J

Merci.

Yeah, I would agree ... and I still have a roll of Foma 200 in the Canonet QL17 that needs to be finished.

Stay tuned ... :D

I washed out this weekend, but that's OK ... last weekend was not too bad overall.

And I would glad to help you out with this one ... ;)

Oh, the Fuji is a very bokeh-able find, too.

Foma 100 Classic film home developed in Caffenol CH for 15 minutes and scanned via Epson V600 ... taken with a ME Super and Spiratone (Soligor) 20/2.8. All images shot last weekend in Poitiers. (Xpost from B&W film thread)

I like the CH recipe with the Foma 100 and I have a roll of Foma 200 in a Canonet QL 17 that I need to finish ... curious as to what the results will be with the CH recipe for the 200.

Salut Craig,

Yeah, I almost postponed going back to the house to make lunch and etc. The gentleman was really nice and to be honest, I was a bit worried that the second (black) Leica would be gone. If I had paid better attention and noticed off-the-bat the fast f/2.5 Hektor, one little girl would have maybe been late to a b-day party ! :D

Hi, I would agree. It has a "moderate" squeal and I may intervene when time allows ... I have been successful with other Canon bodies and hopefully the A-1 will be not too hard. Cheers, J

Last purchase, same stand ... good to his word the other Leica was waiting on me a few hours later. I had rapidly tested most of the gear at home and was satisfied enough. I knew that there was a problem with the Bronica, but I really wanted to have a good closer look at the first Lecia and the Tower. Both seemed OK for speeds and the like ... plus one cannot really complain for the prices that I paid !!!

So again, after a bit of gentle haggling, I picked up the following after again some quite nice price reductions.

- a Leica from 1938 transformed into IIIf (serial 293xxx) with a Leitz Hektor 5cm f/2.5 ... yes, a f/2.5, not the f/3.5 that I thought it was on first site. (70 € !!!)
- a Meyer-Optik Göritz Orestor 135/2.8 with hood - 15 blades (10 €)

Believe it or not, I turned my nose up at Minolta Autocord (not that nice and he would not come down on his price here) and a Rollei 35 ... I had to stop somewhere.

So, the 1952 Lecia IIIf already has film in it with the 5cm f/2.5 ... I forgot what lil' bricks these Leicas are and never thought that I would come along one like this ... and certainly not two "cheap" ... a very, very happy camper. Glad that I got up out of bed early enough last Sunday morning.

Purchase n° 2 ... upon my return from the cash machine and after a bit of haggling, I snapped up the following for two 50 € bills ...

- a very nice working Mamiya M645 with Sekor C 80/2.8 ... the focus screen is badly smudged, but all else seems AOK ...
- a very nice, but shooting at default shutter speed of 1/500 (even with a new battery) a Bronica Zenza ETR with handle, a working, but dim AE finder and a Zenzanon MC 50/2.8 ...
- a very nice working Tower Type 3 (Sears !?) with FED (in Cyrillic) 50/3.5 (one that I had "reserved") ...
- a Leica IIIf (serial n° 6300xx = 1952) with an Industar (in Cyrillic) 50/3.5 ( the other that I had reserved) ...

I was really surprised that he came down a lot on the initial prices for the Tower and the Leica ... wow. But it was still not done, because from the bag that came the medium format gear, he took out another Leica after we had exchanged cash for gear and go figure I was short on cash for what he was asking and I had to go home to fix lunch and take Charlotte to a b-day party ... so, we agreed to "reserve" it until I could get back from my obligations ...

After buying the books, I came across a stand where a man and his wife were selling odds and ends ... AND there was some nice camera stuff to be had ... so, for 45€, I got on my first purchase :

- a very nice working Canon A-1 with a FDn 35-70.3.5-4.5 (15 €)
- a excellent working Yashica Minister (45/2.8) with OEM hood (10€)
- a very nice working Yashica Electro 35 G (45/1.7) with a dead battery (slightly bent filter threads) (10€)
- a quite nice working Minoltla Hi-Matic 9 (45/1.7), but the shutter sometimes will not fire, only 1 out of 20 times (10 €)
- and for "free" a ausJENA Pancolar 50/1.8 ... it was an "electric" lens, but everything had been removed there ... still good

I also "reserved" a few items since I had not a lot of cash. The gentleman said that he had some medium format stuff to sell, too ... so we agreed that I would go to a cash distributor and that he would go get the bag with the other things. Thus, my next post for the second purchase at this stand to follow.

I had a really great Sunday at one field/boot sale ... it was at Pouzioux La Jarrie which is about 10 minutes west of Poitiers.

The "Préciscope" (metal & made in France) fine focus finder was 2€ and each book was 1€ ... thus a total of 7€. It should be fun to read the dark room book and there's 350+ pages ... and the color development book should be fun, too. I am tempted to try it out at home one day.

Salut,

"Franken-lensing" for me is kind of like Frankenstein photo equipment combos ... things that are not supposed to go together, but someone puts them together to make them work ... I do a lot with slide projector lenses ( see The "Projector Lens" Club ... - PentaxForums.com ) and have even tried 8mm movie film lenses ... not a lot of success with the 8mm, but I have not really given up yet.

Here's an example for a slide projector lens inserted into a de-glassed Helios 44-2 body ... Cheers, J

Late Friday afternoon I took Charlotte to her flute lesson and then zipped over to the botanical garden with the (new-to-me) SMC A 24/2.8 ... afterwards we went to a children's bookstore. All wide open and at (or near) MFD ... xpost from the K-1 thread
