    Nice work with the Retina Reflex. I never spent as much time with mine as I would have liked. My earlier model II didn’t have the lens versatility of the later ones, but the normal lens was terrific and the shutter was amazingly quiet.

      Thanks Mike! I no longer have mine. I remember shooting this roll of film well — I’d had a really dreadful day personally, and that afternoon I came home to find this camera in my mailbox, so I loaded it with film and shot the whole thing in an hour. It was great therapy. But the meter was very weak, and the focus ring was stiff, so I sold it last year. I might enjoy having another one that worked well. That lens is just a serious gem.

      This is one of those shots, Sam, that looks way better on film than I remember it in real life!

        Hey Jim, I love it when that happens, it’s the magic of film I think! :-)
