Hi film people. Here are some of my film cameras. The Nikon S2 is my very first camera, from 1968, and it still takes pictures for me without complaint. I like the feel of the Leica but the cross-hand focus I must do on the 2.8 Elmar lens isn't very natural for me. The Russian Kiev exchanges lenses with the Nikon as they are both based on the Contax. Unfortunately I can't remember how to make and change settings on the Kiev without looking in the manual. Newest is the Canon P with a great viewfinder. I really like this one.

Of course I will post photos soon. Just introducing myself and my rfs.

I've got a 3.5 elmar lens for my Leica iiif and it's the same story. Infinity is at about 7 o'clock when you're looking at it head on, and if you are going from infinity lock to anything within 10 feet you have an awkward hand flip in there to get your focus. But it is a beautiful camera.
