Don't tempt me with any more but I think if I went for a Kiev, it would be an older model. I saw a Fed 2 in WYC a while ago and liked the look of that.

The ME super arrived today and looks to be in good working order. It just needs a clean up but it's a nice size.; it deserves a little pancake lens on the end.

The older Kievs are said to be better made than the various model 4s. I have a IIIa which is nice to use but the meter is rubbish and the pull-up-to-change shutter speed knob is a pin in the backside. Great lenses though, I swapped the Jupiter 8 50mm f2 for the same Sonnar off my Contax and you couldn't tell the difference.

Nice cameras though, I need to sort out the rangefinder on the one I rebuilt. Unless you want to give that one a go Yoko?

I'll give rangefinder adjusting a miss for the moment thanks. I never seem to get round to fixing things up these days. It would probably end up left on a dark shelf somewhere. I've a few lenses that need a clean out too.
On a different note, my new China visa came through a few days ago.

Oh yeah, nearly time for the annual trip. When do you go? Plenty of time to decide what cameras to take.

Mid-September. Don't know what to do with cameras this year as I used the digital much more last time out and felt like I really had to make an effort to go out with film. I think it's one only; either a rangefinder or an SLR with one 'do it all' lens.

You could always take your Ricoh. Just had a count up and I have at least fifteen cameras on or around my desk. Not including the big tub I got in a job lot.

I took the Ricoh last year and it's still got half a film left in it. If I take an RF, it'll be a different one.
