    Found this honey at a swap meet this morning for $50. Mint condition,
    fully functional SL35. Both body and Zeiss Planar lens made in Germany
    (most of these were made in Singapore so the German-made examples
    are more collectible).

    Included original case and a Rollei-made adapter to mount Leica
    screw lenses on the SL35.

    Sweet! I have two bodies, a black SL35 and a silver one. One came with a Tamron 90/2.5 and the other one was fitted with the Planar 50/1.8 from Adorama ($15.00 on sale).

    They are like the Rolls Royce of the SLRs.

    Gorgeous - nice find!! You'll have to run some film through there and put that Planar through its paces soon. :D

    I should mention that I can put the Planar on the Canon 5D, I have the adapter.

    We'd like some pics taken with your baby... ;)

    Pics today? Well, you'll have to give me a little more time. It's raining here
    today. I'll try to get out in the next few days. :)

    On paper yes, but they didn't have much of a reputation for reliability, particularly the non German products. If the quality control had been up to that of Contax they'd have been a force to reckon with.

    Nice camera, in what looks mint condition & well worth having.
