    +1 to LK's comment about the necessary care for vintage items, usually at a high cost in time and/or money.

    The first one is, the second one is called Super Badger--probably the same thing--and the last one is a regular badger.

    I just got a new camera too!

    Leicaflex SL2. [​IMG]


    The Ebay pic.

    And today I got a 50mm Summicron-M in silver very cheaply because of the two gouges in the top of the lens hood.

    the new verision is the 420 and is decent but deffintally has its issues. check out http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympuse420/
    the new 25mm pancake lens is cool for street photography.

    I will be a canon user for life and i will always recommend choosing canon or nikon. Remember your best investment is the lens not the camera with dslrs.

    It's a bit ironic that while all of you are buying DSLRs, I'm investing in film SLR technology from the mid '70s that arguably has yet to be surpassed, and takes lenses that are recognized as among the best optics ever made.

    The beauty of the Leica R lenses is that they can be adapted for use with Canon DSLRs and are exclusively manual focus (autofocus is a non-starter for me). This would give me the option of digital if I ever were tempted to go that route.

    You have a good approach -- the main reason I picked up the D200 was so that I could use of few of my father's really good Nikkor glass that has been gathering dust. Nice to have the range of fisheyes and big teles and nice, simple, high quality primes. I've been shooting near-exclusively with his MF 58mm f/1.2 Noct lately -- I am an available-light guy and I love that thing. It has stupendous bokeh, too (I used to think that was a bit of a myth until I did a side-by-side with a Nikkor 55mm f1.2). I've enjoyed it so much that I am looking for two or three pieces of MF glass to mate with it -- all ultrafast primes.

    For a while I was carrying the '200 in a dual-body bag with an F4. Did some really important personal work with the F4, had the film sent out as I had pushed it. Never got it back. Pissed. I had expected to continue with them both in concert but now I don't know.

    Happy shooting,
    Huntsman
