About me:

I worked as an R&D chemist doing color design and pigmentation of exterior OEM automotive finishes during most of a 40 year career with DuPont. I retired as a Senior Research Fellow in July 2004 but still participate in a local professional color society. I shoot primarily with Fujifilm, Leica, Pentax, and Sony digital cameras.

What began as an attempt to acquire a few used primes to use with my Pentax film cameras has turned into a major case of collector's mania and I’ve accumulated an extensive collection of film and digital camera bodies, lenses, and accessories over the past 17+ years.

My collection of digital cameras:

+ Epson R-D1 MILC body
+ Fujifilm F31fd, X30 digicams; X-A1, X-E3, X-H1, X-T2 MILC bodies
+ Leica M8, M8.2, M9, M Typ 240, M10 MILC bodies
+ Olympus C-2020Z, E-10, D-40Z digicams
+ Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 digicam
+ Pentax *ist-D, K10D, K20D, K-m, K-7, K-x, K-5, K-5 IIs, K-3, K-3 II, K-1 II, KP DSLR bodies; Q (2), Q7, Q-S1, K-01 (4) MILC bodies; Optio S4, MX-1 digicams
+ Ricoh GXR body w/ 6 lensor modules
+ Sony RX100 V digicam
