    I just received the latest piece, a Dynarex 100mm 1:4.8 in absolute 'as new' condition that I found on Ebay. (I had been looking for the "right" one for a long time.) I thought I'd celebrate by showing off my collection and sharing it with the group.

    The camera was purchased new by my father in Switzerland in 1962, has recently had its every-10-year service, and works beautifully. The two lenses marked with an * were owned by my father. Everything else has been acquired by me (mostly on Ebay), including the Voigtlander custom Bessamatic camera bag. I think only the Septon 50mm 1:2 and Zoomar remain to be found. There's also a Super-Dynarex 200mm, but the Tele-Xenar is very similar and covers that focal length.

    These are not "display case queens". I really enjoy shooting with this equipment!
