    Thanks

    Nice one! Coincidentally, I just posted a thread on getting back into RF photography. You wouldn't happen to have a Pop Photo from the late 70s with an article on Alfred Eisenstaedt trying to recreate his ballet photos with old, uncoated lenses for his Leica II?

    Sadly I only have the one, I regret not buying all of the ones in the shop at the time (they were all 50s).

    The Minolta adds show the old company name before it was Minolta. That was fun, thanks.

    Great scans, thanks!

    It would be nice to find a Minolta Autocord for "only" $99 : )

    FYI if anyone is getting back into film, the "Film Photography Podcast" is a fun place to hang out and has a nice group of folks like MU43.

    Leica Summicron f/2. Nice!

    Don't think Leica is located at that address any longer... Leica Gallery is off of Broadway if my memory serves.

    No problem, I will have another look through it and put some more up maybe. So annoyed with myself now that I didn't buy the whole set!

    I enjoyed looking at these pages too.....my father collected older cameras so I've probably held a few of these or something similar.....I would love to hold some of them now!!
