The LOCOstgraphy style part2 - new old stuff...

I'm back in Germany since May and I just took my Praktica LTL3 with Helios 44M-4 2/58mm, the Revuenon Special 2.8/135mm, the Tron flash, the Polaroid SX-70 Sonar, the Leitz Elmarit-R 2.8/35mm, a M42-EOS and a LeicaR-EOS adapter (both from quenoX), the digital EOS stuff, some 35mm- and pocket-films and my two Lowepro bags (Nova 5 AW and Orion Trekker II) with me from Brazil.

In the last days I just bought some new old stuff here in Germany and, of course, I did it in the real locostgraphy style (see part1 here)!  Like at the Durlacher Kruschtlmarkt flea market in Karlsruhe Durlach, the Oxfam store and the Mimapi Altertümchen, both in the wonderful Südstadt of Köln, where my beautiful girl friend lives, and at the two social secondhand stores the Kashka and the Déjà-vu, both in Karlsruhe.
The wonderful fact to buy old photo equipment at flea markets and thrift stores in Germany is, that you can buy good stuff, which already works, for a good and fair price! I also was at a well known photo store in Köln to buy a wonderful Zeiss Ikon Contaflex for a relatively high price, but it didn't work and the dealer was very astonished that I even want to use it. Of course I didn't buy the Contaflex, because I don't want an expensive dust catcher! ;)

I just bought some cool SLRs:
Revue ML (a labeled Praktica MTL5)
Revueflex 3000 SL (a labeled Chinon CX)
Praktica Super TL
Revue X4-M (a labeled Mamiya ZE-X)
Black Bone III + Black Bone II
But my main focus at the moment is to buy M42 prime lenses, which I can adapt at the digital EOS. Therefore I bought the following lenses:
_ Chinon 2.8/28mm
_ Schacht Edixa-Travenar-A 2.8/50mm
_ Steinheil Auto-Cassaron 2.8/50mm (@ Praktica Super TL)
_ Revuenon Auto MC 1.8/50mm (a labeled Pentacon / Meyer Optik Görlitz, @ Revue ML)
_ Revuenon 1.7/55mm (a labeled Chinon, @ Revueflex 3000 SL)
_ Schacht Edixa-Travenar-R 2.8/85mm
_ Revuenon Special 2.8/135mm
_ Rexatar 5.6/300mm
_ 2x Revue Auto Tele Converter 2x
Then I also bought three other cool cameras:
Olympus µ[mju:]
Minolta AL-F
_ Kodak pocket instamatic 100
Further I bought some other stuff:
_ Revuenon 3.5/135mm (a labeled Enna München, with M39 Zenit screw mount)
_ Auto Revuenon MCF 1.4/50mm (a labeled Mamiya Sekor-EF 1.4/50mm lens) + Auto Revuenon MCE 4.5/80-205mm (a labeled Osawa lens) both with Mamiya ZE bayonet and which came with the Revue X4-M
_ Metz Mecablitz 30B3 flash
_ Revue Tron C30S flash
_ Lowepro Nova 1
_ Holiday 80s style photo bag

Totally I've paid 193 Euro for all this new old stuff!

And at the end of the post two pictures taken with the EOS Rebel XSi (450D) and the Chinon 2.8/28mm with crop factor it's a 44.8mm (the 1st picture) and the Revue 1.8/50mm with crop factor it's a 80mm (the 2nd picture):
