    Thanks for that link to the inspiring Dowling article on the ESII. It has definitely kindled some enthusiasm for playing with that unusual Pentax. It has also gotten me wondering if maybe the guy who gave it to me might like it back.

      I’m sure the fellow who gave you that camera would be happy, if it turns out you haven’t much use for it, if you would pass it along to some other film photographer who would enjoy it!

      I’m down to 43 cameras and that’s still more than I can reasonably regularly use: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12XL_QjfZR_NygiDs4iR2s3boVX4V3NTFGszZafvB85c/edit?usp=sharing
