    Here are some of the new babies that followed me home last weekend. :)

    Kodak Retina I(010 version). This particular one was available in overseas PXs only during WW2. It was badly listed on the bay for $25, so I went for it. It came in on Saturday.

    I had the Honeywell labeled version of the Spotmatic II, so I needed the Asahi version..hehe I picked this one up at a fleamarket for cheap.

    I got this Contaflex II online for a good price. Now all I need is a I and a III, and I will have all 6 Contaflex models with that body.

    Here is a lonely Electro 35 that I got when I got the Contalex, it is a cool camera!

    Nice congrats...

    All you need is to find a black paint Spotmatic to join those two.

    Most of it was from pacific rim camera and local fleamarkets. The Retina was the only ebay find lately.

    I do have some new toys coming from the bay soon though. :)

    For the love of Mike, get that Zeiss Tessar lens checked on the Contaflex and if it's scratch/fungus free, shoot that baby! You'll probably be pleasantly surprised at the quality.

    That Yashica looks badass, as do the Spotmatics - more great lenses. :thumbup:

    I hope you get some use of them, you have a nice lot here!
