    Got my Ansco Speedex 4.5 Special in the mail today :D
    It has an Apotar f/4.5 85 mm lens with a Prontor-S shutter. Everything seems to be in beautiful shape! Can't wait to get a roll of film through it!

    I also got a Bogen 3029 (Also known as the Manfrotto 141R) head for my Bogen 3001 tripod! Now my tripod setup is complete! YAY!

    It's been a good day!

    Zach :D

    Awesome. It looks really clean. Sweet DOF scale on the top; I didn't know these models had a DOF scale. It comes in very handy with guestimation focusing.

    Wow, Zach! It's a beauty! :D You must be so pumped. Can't wait to see something from it.

    You're right, you did have a good day. Toys in the mail are the best. :cheer:

    It really is a sweet camera and it is in excellent condition! Beleive it or not it was only about $25 on ebay! I'm an ebay whore as of late and I just shopped around til I found one that piqued my interest! I think this one was mislabeled but it worked out!


    Zach :D
