IIIf BD (1950)
5cm f1.5 Summarit
3.5cm Summaron f3.5
9cm f4 Elmar
VIOOH etc etc

Gets used for shooting all sorts of things, see the gallery (Brian's one and 
    user's gallery). Rarely use the Elmar.

Nothing feels like a classic III, including M's, although I still covet a 
MP, for a very cheap price...well I can hope! The D1 and D2 have absolutely 
nothing like the same feel and I speak as someone who bought a D1 and has 
decided against a D2. I don't dismiss the RD-1 or its successor, provided 
it is (a) affordable and (b) well-built - and MUST be compatible with LTM 

If I can continue to work with B&W C41 I will. I think it far preferable to 
digital...even though I use PS to "print" the scanned negs.

Glad to hear that so many of you have still got them and use them AND 
treasure them.

I was begining to think this was a N'lux users group ;-)
