Leica Model 1 with 50 mm Elmar. The first Leica I ever owned. (Body  
totaled in a car crash. I still have the lens.)
Contax 1. A beast of a camera, heavy, unergonomic, unreliable. But  
great in a collection to contrast with a Leica. (Traded for a prewar  
Leica IIIc with Summitar.)
Leica IIIc with Summitar (above). Used on honeymoon in the Jurassic  
era. My wife and I are still married. The camera was stolen.
Robot 1. Ruined and rusted into a hulk by a leaky roof. I loved that  
unique camera. Wind it on Sundays. Take pictures all week long.
Rollei 4x4. Sold to fix 1947 Plymouth.
