100mm macro due in ... very soon ... then I'll go on a Canon shoot.
Today at Flee market ,I purchased an OLD FL lens.Nice cond. But it does not do apperature meter reading.!? Do I have to use a light meter with it?
Are fl lenses ment to use with light meter?
Funny...I thought I got a great buy on this yard sale canon outfit; FTb,28,50,200,and tubes @ $30.00 Paid $90.00 for canon 20mm - a good buy, paid $90.00 for 100mm Vivitar(new)f3.5 macro, and now $50.00 on fl 135mm f2.5 NOT SO CHEAP AN OUTFIT ...for film !. And that's with no shades.
ADD ; Oh - I forgot ; I have a bid in on a canon fd 35mm lens too.!
Now - to review - Canon FTb,Canon 20mm,Canon 28mm,Canon 35mm,canon 50mm( - with a little oil on blades - but still working properly),Vivitar 90mm 3.5 macro(as new),Canon fL 135mm 2.5(have to use a light meter with),Canon 200mm - And tubes # 1 + 2.

OK -let's deal with this ;
9 of 21 shots came out with black ,or serverly shawed RIGHT side of photo...looking at photo.little less than HALF the picture.2 almost have a uniform line straight down.Most are un-uniform.Some (2 only,much more faint)but still ya can see darkness.
I did change lenses while shooting...but a light leak would come white - not black.I re-looked at ALL the lenses -on and off the camera...they are working right. And that second prong ...on back of each FD lens,is to sync with internal meter - I know - because I have one FL lens that does NOThave that second prong.
I know I shouldn't jump,be addicted to ebay buying ...buy one RIGHT NOW.! ...but...I looked ,and felt sure it was the body that has the intermitent problem... I could be wrong - but - I don't think so... I purchased a FTb that the guy tested with film...(for $60.00 shipping included...no OLD problems with camera)
Now I'm up to my temporary limit on my new Paypal Extras Mastercard.(That I just got!-didn't even get the card yet...a 7 to 10 day thing). Gotta pay it off by like the 20th of next month. Now to then - I gotta go cold turkey...hope I don't get the shakes...
Now - if I am wrong - and it's some-how MY lenses...I just wasted $60.00 , I truly think it is the body... I also re-tested the body(no film)...body also checks out fine...
Add ; OK - here's the junk I got;(I chose a daark,med. and light RIGHT side shaded shots)
