Starting my Vintage Camera Collection - Do you have any Suggestions?
4

Now that I am reaching retirement age, I have decided to go back to my first love which is photography. And one of the things I would like to do is collect vintage Cameras. If you have a suggestion, I would love to hear it.
One Caveat though, No Leicas, although I admire and like them, I can't afford them . Maybe one Leica would be okay. My target is to collect 50 vintage film cameras in 3 years. So far here are the cameras I have collected since December 2020. I intend to collect cameras and lenses in mint, near mint or very good condition .
Currently my theme is " Cameras of the 60's, 70's and the 80's"

A Nikomat EL which I purchased from Japan purchase for 90$

A Rollei 35T purchased for 120$

A Yashica FX-3 Super 2000 given to me by a friend

A Nikon F with lens purchase for 300$

A Minolta SRT101 purchase for 120$

Almost a complete set of Pentax Auto 110 Camera which I bought in ebay for 160$
