Only 20!! Those were the days.
Re the oly 28mm, it came with one of the bargain bundles I picked up. Only the f3.5 though. I know what you mean about the vintage-digital thing. I haven't seen the point yet. It's ok for close ups and non-moving images, especially now I've got the focus peaking and magnification on a preset menu. Will try it outside on a hyperfocal setting and point and shoot, see what it does.
Edit, forgot to mention that dof is really easy; you can see it change as you open or close the aperture

Got the Durst back in one piece but it's not quite usable. The shutter and lens are fine, it winds on and fires, but the counter resets by itself because of a problem with the rewind release, which is fairly jammed. I know why but unless I could magic a new sprocket spool and pin from the 1960s, it'll stay that way. Am going to stop fiddling now.

I took a few more photos with the OMD and vintage lens this morning. (including spider in pic of the day ) Some using manual focus, others on f8 using the zone focus on the lens set between about 5ft and infinity. Not bad, variations in quality but nothing the autofocus wouldn't do. In bright conditions, focussing manually isn't too difficult.

We popped into an antique shop after picking up a vintage filing cabinet for my wife and found a leather case for the camera that kicked off all of my collecting. 5 all in for the Duaflex ii. I just spent 15 mins hunting through four large containers for my Diax and then found it in a camera bag.

Been tinkering with the Diax 1a again. Managed to get in to the shutter this time and managed to fix it! The little lever at the three o'clock position wasn't moving at all. I guess this has something to do with the shutter speeds. I gave it a flush of lighter fluid and a drop of oil and it freed up. I also found three rolls of Jessops film and four roll of Kodak Colour Plus for 3.50 at the reuse shop too. Not a bad day overall.

Also got this from the antique centre, A Feuerhand Baby 275 storm lamp. Don't know why but I like it. From West Germany and has Jena glass. Handheld G1 with Olympus 28mm f2.8.

You can still buy them new on Amazon for about 22.
