    Sorry that was a typo in the title, actually I meant FR-1, not FX-1!

    Actually it was quite a steal for what I paid for it. Lots of bidders, I only won by $1 in the end! Sheer dumb luck that. FR-1's in this good shape with ML lenses are hard to come by from what I have seen. This lot looks so nice in the pics I think I'm okay with eating tons of Japanese noodles all month. I may sell off a lot of the filters and my other C/Y's soon to pay for it all anyway. I've got twice again the filters I need at this point and I won't need the other lenses now anyway now that I've stepped it up a notch lens-wise. The wide angle looks to be an Adaptall which pleased me to no end as that was the last basic lens I needed for my Pentax SPII kit. I killed two birds with that bid and didn't even know it. All I need is an adapter for M42 and I'm all set now.
