My current "Most Wanted" List of lenses
View previous topic :: View next topic  


PostPosted: Tue Nov 25, 2014 7:52 am    Post subject: My current "Most Wanted" List of lenses Reply with quote

EBC X-Fujinon 100/2.8
SMC Pentax K 85mm F1.8
Canon FLP pancake 38/2.8
Also looking for Konica Hexanon Preset's in AR mount, the 57/1.4, & the 135/3.5
See here: http://www.buhla.de/Foto/Konica/eHexanonUebersicht.html[/b]

Update:
Topcor RE 58/18 in black
Contax G 28 that has mechanical issues, I'm planning to transplant the optics.

I'd like to find a nice but cheap Leica M 50/2, no tab style, would prefer the knurled focus ring like the Fat Tele-Elmarit 90/2.8 or the Black DR, that would be sweet, but $$$$ I'm currently using a Fujinon L 50/2 LTM.
It's for a small travel kit: CV15III, Leica M 24/2.8 Asph(wish it or 28mm was tab-less), Fujinon L 50/2, 90/2.8 Tele-Elmarit(Fat), it all fits in a Lowepro StreamLine 100

Some nice ones on that list. Understandable that you want to have them. Wink

On my list meanwhile is only ONE lens! Shocked Amazing reduction, isn't it? Laughing

A superwide prime (2.8/14) or superwide zoom (12-24, 15-30) for Nikon fullframe. Wink

I've really cut down my list, and even a few of those I may never get, as I have more than I have time to use as it is.

And now with the Sigma 12-24 for Nikon here, my list is empty! Can you believe that?
I think for the very first time in like 10 years, the list is EMPTY! Shocked

[quote="Lightshow"]Topcor(Simlar) 9cm/90mm in LTM/M39
http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/T%C5%8Dky%C5%8D_K%C5%8Dgaku_lenses_in_Leica_screw_mount

Konica Hexanon AR EE 85/1.8 metal all black


What is different with the EE version of this lens?


PostPosted: Thu Mar 12, 2015 12:10 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

EE = all metal, AE = rubber focus ring, though either would be nice.

Top of my list atm is the SMC Pentax 200mm F2.5 followed by the SMC Pentax M 300mm F4, only problems are I can't find any and if I did until I sell some bits I couldn't buy them anyway Sad

huh .. i just since yesterday seriously want a Leitz 50mm Summar, extremely affordable

it claims 'coated' .. which i read as 'not by factory' .. this also means its had a CLA once on its career, but its also coated, so harder than original

silly shop / shopping-cart seems defunct

i do also own a 1933 Summitar, bit of balsamics, never a CLA

in fact i really like it, i'm lookin for someone to re-glue the front group ...

over the phone

hope i like it, i needs nice news at the moment

my current Want-List now' has

the smallest Lowepro SlingShot [is it the 101?]

4 x CLA's one for every pre- 50's 'keeper'

i need to corner whover the LivingNationalTreasure currently is ...

Well, here is a nice source for that Simlar. Looks pretty much like the Elmar 9cm, probably equal lens scheme too.
http://www.cameraguild.jp/nekosan/simlar9cm.htm

My list:

1. CV 15 VM III
2. Japanese LTM lenses (currently looking after Chiyoko, Tanack and Kyoei)
3. Cheap rare SLR lenses

I've updated my list, I'm holding off on the 85's till better deals come along as they're not too rare, the others I would buy now.

I wouldn't recommend that lens.
I owned it once, but sold it. It is very heavy and difficult to focus.
The focus ring is tight and rather hard to move.

Are you sure that this is true for every copy? Perhaps that was just an issue with your lens...

No, Ive had my Topcor 85 for a long while now, it's part of the reason I am holding off on the other 85's, it's awesome.

How much did you pay? Wink

A bit north of $1000, it's in beautiful condition.

No lens I'll really need, but I'm waiting for the Hyper Wide Heliar 10mm im Leica mount.
130 will be an obstacle ....

Congrats! Although not really cheap what I have seen...... Wink

However, it's not bad at all and very handsome.

The price reflects more the rarity. I wonder how many where made?

Actually I have no idea. However, the serial numbers are all quite in the same range from what I've seen up to now. I think your "new" lens is just apprx. 300 before mine.
