I'm finished with flipping.
There's only one that's even remotely sharp by modern standards
Oh, and a Kiev 88, the Khassleblyad.* I had a period where I used all of these, but it will soon be time to thin the herd.
I still have my Kiev88 kit... I bought it from Saul Kaminsky at KievUSA in CT... It was completely redone by him and his team... I used to call those cameras "Hasselnyet" ...
Canon olympus fujifilm around in three circles in 12 years now. 25 bodies, 30 lenses. Lots of dollars.
Should have sticked with olympus and a fast 25mm
I wonder about the dollars. I generally bought used at a good price, and resold with little or no loss. So I maintain the belief that I've spent relatively few dollars over fifteen years and many, many different kits. The dollars I wonder about are the postage for all of that. I'd love to know what I contributed to the USPSs revenue stream over the years.
I also buy used gear, almost always. But I'm not a good bisniss man so I tend to sell way to cheap. But I use to say to my wife that at least I'm not in the pub and drinking the money away
But yeah, my postoffice know my face by now
