    image. Here's my black paint MP with a Leicavit sitting on a stack of fiber based paper. That's a 50mm dual range Summicron attached, I love this combo except for the fact that the lens is chrome. Shot this with my MM, there's some irony in this somewhere.

    My Voigtlander Bessa R - nice camera to use (does feel a little cheap though) and pleasantly surprising Jupiter 50mm f/2 (which is actually cheap!)

    P4052451.

    My Olympus 35 SP - was surprised at the chunkiness of this compared to my OM's & Pen's - nice to use though

    P4052458.

    Any chance of a side-view Amin ? I hear the 40 is quite compact.

    You've got a great, compact lens on your OM-4T, Amin. Terrific combo, congrats!

    I love my F100 - gave me an appreciation for bells & whistles in a modern body.

    Not a particularly flattering portrait

    P9270169.

    Which resulted in this on Velvia 50 - the slide looked better than the scan but the vibrant red/Velvia combo was over-powering

    I thought red channel overload was more of a problem for digital sensors, but it appears some film stock doesn't handle it so well either

    What are your thoughts on the BESSA R4M? Nice line up BTW!

    I love the R4M. The rangefinder was bright as hell. If I had to get another Bessa though it would probably be an R3M. I pretty much choose the R4M because at the time i had a 28mm Elmarit that I was using with an M8. I figured the R4M had more framelines for all the lenses I had (28, 35, 50). Turns out I hated wide shooting and the frames for 50mm on this camera were too small. So that's when I moved to the M6 with the .85 finder.

    Here's a photo of my recently acquired Konica Autoreflex T with 57/1.4 next to my NEX-6 with a Pen F 38/1.8. The Konica is in great physical shape, but the light meter doesn't work, even with fresh 675s installed. Granted, the batteries may be NOS that have been hanging on a shelf a long time, but no worries. I paid less for the T + 57/1.4 + 40/1.8 lenses than some on eBay ask for the 40 by itself. The lenses are in fantastic shape, so no big deal. My wife just rolled her eyes when I told her it was another display piece for my little camera museum. :D
