Recently i discovered a nice eBay auction for the Canon Pellix (fixed mirror, yay!) with the 24/1.4L FD! But 900 dollars is a joke. Even if it's mint.Good luck with the auction.
I was looking for a 24/2, shame the oly won't hook up with my nikon ;)
it would with an adapter.. it's MF so this works i guess
@adam.i don't know why you insit on fixed mirrors so much.. so if the 1.4 turns to a 1.7 the viewfinder turns to a 2.0 and you lose sharpeness because the mirror is between your lens and the film.. you will also lose contrast.. you lose a lot of quality.. and what for ?these are mostly the reasons why nobody shoots with these cameras.
Wait a sec...does your t-shirt in your profile photo say "deviantart sucks"??? HAHAHAH
Hab mich schon gefragt, ob du noch mit deiner OM unterwegs bist - bist du jetzt nur noch mit der Leica M unterwegs?
Sev... I insist on the fixed mirror because it's a perfect marriage between a rangefinder and the SLR. It's the SLR + some advantages of the rangefinder. And trust me, it does change a lot. I get irritated to shoot with a normal SLR now. It's an addiction.I will try to prove you wrong, because i don't think that the loss of quality is so big. I will shoot the same good lens, same high quality film, but try that on my 1N RS and on the EOS 1 and will scan it real big plus later make a big print. And then i will ask you to choose.I really think that the reason why almost nobody shoots with such cameras, is exactly the kind of whining you're presenting here. BUT - i might be wrong. And then i owe you :) Although i already owe you ;) Deal?Btw, bought a Yashica Electro GSN. Made two rolls. Selling it back. Such a beautiful camera, such a great lens.... and such a complete lack of exposure control - the only mode this camera works in is Av. And it get's totally lost in the dark, too.
