As the title says, I have recently doubled the number of analogue cameras I own, adding the beautiful, Asahi Pentax SV, (early, green ‘R’ version), to the legendary Rolleiflex T2. It came packaged with the Asahi Pentax Super-Takumar 55mm f1.8 lens, which unfortunately had some mild lens fungus around the edges of the inside of the rear element, though after some internet research, I managed to – carefully – get it cleaned off.
It is always advisable to shoot a test roll when acquiring a new camera; as I found out the hard way with the Rolleiflex, (loading problems leading to scratched film); so I ran a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 through, a film that I have used a couple of times before in the Rollei. And another lesson that has come to light is that getting used to handholding manual-focus lenses is something that I’m going to have to practice, especially when limited to ‘available light’.
