What new cameras do you have coming to your collection ?

BTW, a book series on the older cameras that are ripe for collecting are the books written by Jason Schneider. They were written a number of years ago and maybe out of print (I don't know) but I found them fascinating.

I think there are three books in the series and they are available on the used book market.

I'll take a look at them when I can. May find them online.

I have an Iloca Rapid IIL, An Arette IB, An Agfa Optima I and a Voightlander Bessamatic on the way.

If you are looking for a particular camera, let me know and if I have it, it's yours. I have a lot of old Kodak/Ensign/Zeiss Ikon camera's that are just sat around in boxes.
I'm very eclectic in my collecting. Rather than obtain every camera in a series I look for a representative one out of the series. Send a list of what you have and We may strike a deal on my buying some of yours. I would not feel right not paying the going price on one.

That is a Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 50mm F/4 Zebra in Pentacon 6 mount. I have a 50mm f/2.8, a Sonnar 180 F/2.8 and a Sonnar 300mm F/4 in Pentacon 6 mount as well. They adapt very well to the 645 and work just as good on my K10, K7, Spotmatics and K1000.

These photos were taken with my K7 using a Pentax F 50mm f/1.7 lens.
