Very nice, Cow 54! I saw an Exacta in an antique mall down in Camas last weekend and almost picked it up. I opted to buy a Tasco 7800 Binoculars camera instead

COW 54 if you don't mind my asking, where are you finding these fantastic cameras? I thought at first on eBay but evidently they are either not there or I'm not using the right search terms.

I find them in thrift shops, on EBAY, Craig's list and sometimes just donated to me.

I've got a place for them.

An "E" model, K7E from 1959

Has 2.8/80 lens, Schneider Xenotar

I am honored to get this one, I must be doing something right!

COW, that Rollei is an awesome picture taking beast. I have that exact model, and the taking lens is quite special! Yeah, you doing something right.

Those cameras were also made at a time when pro gear was meant to be fixable and could last a career, if well taken care of. It is like the Win 52 of medium format goodness.

Congrats, you lucky dog!

This little Minox I got last week.

It was the smallest full-frame 35mm camera for 20+ years.

I see that on the crown that you have not added the strap brackets and strap, they were in the box with the camera. I only mention this in case you did not know what some of the extra stuff was.
