incorrect

It's because they're modern remakes and limited editions, which makes them essentially brand new versions of 60's mechanical masterpieces.
All the style and quality with none of the wear and decay.

To compare, pls see the new reman'd Aston DB4GT's and Lightweight E-Types.

But the old ones aren't expensive, they're trash.

Consult the scriptures, my son:
>This Nikon SP is nice, but feels nowhere near as nice as it's intended competitor, the LEICA M3
>I wouldn't go out of my way to get one for photography
>For the same money, one can get genuine used LEICA cameras and lenses instead, whose optics are much better

I wouldn't spend 1000usd on pic related even though I really want to own one. Of course the TC-1 is a beautiful object and a nice camera to use but it just doesn't offer enough value to justify that high price tag when you can get similar results and user experience with a camera that costs like 1/5th of the price.

Also, the collectors go nuts for anything that is rare, weird and/or expensive, even though the camera in question itself wouldn't really even be that good. So this way a mediocre camera can become a cult item that costs way more than it should based on its performance. Because of this cult status, the people who would actually want to use that camera can't afford to buy it.

Gonna have to agree with you brohiem, the Pen F is something of a technological marvel, a half-frame SLR crammed into a range-finder sized body. Everything about is years ahead of it's time - and it's just fantastic.

Nice.

this.

I got to play with one it's a one-trick pony. f1 is pretty much useless depending on how good the AF is on your body, and stopped down to f8 or f11 it's worse than the plastic fantastic. The 1.2 is better in every way and even the 1.4 gives it a run for its money in the IQ department.

That lens, like many lenses from the early EOS days,was Canon flexing their muscles at Nikon essentially saying, "hey look what we can do".

If I was some lucky bastard and a I got one passed down to me, I'd use it. Other wise I'd sell it in a heartbeat.

Leicas are literally a currency, and devalue massively when they have micro nicks and scratches, thanks to the autists painstakingly examining every picometer surface area.

I pretty much have everything I need, but I would like;

- Nikon FM2
- Full darkroom set up
- Buckets of chemicals
- Boxes of film (fridge to put them in).

As someone who owned an FM2, I liked it but the FE is really the best 35mm Nikon of that era without paying the F3 tax. If you must have full mechanical yea get the FM2 but the FE does it for me. You literally point and shoot, it does aperture priority AND shutter speed priority.

Leica M6 & 35mm cron. I'm fine with My poorfag Bessa R2 & CV 35mm f2.5 kit too though.
For MF, a Mamiya 6.

- Olympus Pen F / FV
- Contax T3 (realistically I'd go for T2)

Ironically I own an FE, and I got one about a month ago - it's superb and with a pancake 50mm Nikkor, it's even sweeter.

I don't know about european or american market very much but standart canon lenses are much cheaper than nikons. i'm a nikon user but i will suggest getting a canon just because of that. but if you have nikon lenses or just want to get a nikon, my suggestion is f90x it's cheap, works with manual lenses, matrix metering, 4 aa batteries. only problem is weight and double exposure. you can do double exp. with mf26 databack
>>
>>3043828
Try the Yashica E-35 GSN. It's an aperture- priority, automatic rangefinder from the early 70's. It comes with a beautiful 45mm f1.7 fixed lens, and, because it's a rangefinder, they're incredibly fast and easy to focus.

A tested, well working unit will run you under $100. Rando copies that haven't had their battery adapted (5.6V mercury batteries are no longer sold), or have a worn rubber pad (leads to "Pad of Death") will run you around $50.
