Well, I went wild!!

Hi Guys
Just updating you with which way I went.

Received a Canon P Rangefinder and a 35mmf2 LTM . Over the last week, have been having a blast, with colour and Ilford FP4.

It's such a silky stainless steel shutter, a lovely v quiet shlick..The viewfinder is 1:1 and is amazing, and the loading looks easy. That is one truly beautiful camera. So's the lens.

Also coming soon, this week
Leica IIIf with Summitar 50mm f2collapsible
Leica M5 black and chrome two lug version .
Canon 50mm f1.4 LTM
and of course a v cheap Hector also.

Various cases, lightmeters, adjucts (add-junk?) I have enough adapters ordered for all contingencies it seems. Even LTM to Canon Eos 60D adapters. Catalogues. camera cases, and a Zeiss Super Ikonta with 80mm Tessar lens for some MF stuff as I like handling the bigger negs.

So that should satisfy my hunger for camera collecting, and let me know all about Rangefinders.

Thank you all for your generous replies...you influenced me enormously.

cheers Dave S
