    Picked a Contaflex 126 up on Ebay for $12 plus shipping, it’s in fabulous condition. The only problem I having is figuring out the f-stops, the light meter seems to be work

    Beautiful! They go for around $100 in good condition, you made a steal. Which lens does it have? Tessar or Pantar?

    Congrats.

    Well, McKeown's quoted price for this 126 camera is between $90 and $150. You got it for $12 plus shipping... Yeah, it's a steal! :lol: :lol:

    The Tessar is a great lens, enjoy taking pics with it.
