    Holy cow! I'm becoming a junkie!!! :banghead: It's like I get one and I want more! Nobody get near me with any crystal meth, ok??:madass:

    A new addition to the family: A Rolleicord. Nearest I can tell it's a Rolleicord 3 Type 2. It's got the Xenar f3.5 lens. Included the case but no lens cap. There's a bit of wear, and the leatherette is loose in a few places, but I paid $70. All the shutter speeds work well and the glass is clear. Did I do good?

    Craigslist rocks!!! :boogie:

    PS: sorry 'bout all the smilies. I couldn't help myself. I'm brimming with a sad combination of exuberance and self-pity. I'm sure you all understand.

    And now you know!!! :D

    It's a powerful addiction, more so than any known drug because there is no way you can quit. :greenpbl:

    Enjoy your addiction! And congrats on the new toy.

    We need a help group. I just bought a Rolleiflex 2.8E Planar, and I'm already thinking about a Hasselblad 500CM system, and even considering large format. Oh and I want an old Widelux. The Rollei hasn't even gotten here yet, it will be here tomorrow. :D

    Sure:

    Step 1 - Buy a collectible camera, any collectible camera

    Step 2 - Buy a special collectible camera

    Step 3 - (you follow me?...):lol:

    ...and so on until...

    Step 12 - Buy the most desirable collectible camera!

    Done! :D

    does converting a collectible (o.k cheap box camera actually) count as a step?

    (in unison) Hi Scott.

    At this point we should probably share how we got into this

    All I can say is, beyond my Zenit, I have several box cameras, a hawkeye folder (from the roarin' 20's) a Yaschica A, and a Konica Auto S3 (that I can't seem to get to work)

    Hi.... I'm an addict too... Howdy...

    I started out by collecting old pentax manuals and takumar lenses. I promised myself that no single item would be over $100. Um... Long story short... I broke that promise more times than I can remember...
