Sorry about my lack of follow through - I'm looking after a heart patient...so,most of my time now is accounted for,AND - I'm on a physical theropy for my foot problem.

I have so many non Nikon cameras I have not even tested with film yet!!!, including ; Walz wide,Fuji gs645w,Retina 11a,Contax 139q,Minolta "A",Fuji compact super rangefinder,GLORIA 6X6,Pentax K2 outfit,Sears(Ricoh)M42 outfit...and...;

When out yardsaling I picked up a Canon FTb outfit;Body,Canon 28mm,50mm and 200mm,all Canon,for $30.00...then on Ebay a second FTb outfit for $80.00...because it had a Vivitar 90mm f2.8 macro sleeper in it...and my 50mm had some oil on blades...
The second 50mm also has oil on blades-but only a tiny bit,and still works correctly(first 50mm does NOT).

So-between the two outfits - I have one real good outfit.Black/accurate FTb,Canon;28,50,200,and Viv.90mm macro...also I have some Viv. tubes for afront the 200mm.

I have my eye on an (ebay) with a Canon 35mm,135mm,50mm macro... !

Very happy day to all,HEART Mike is healing ,and the weather is getting better...
