What's your latest acquisition?

I normally get The Times delivered directly by the distributors to my doormat (sometimes anyway - other times it can be anywhere in the front garden!) - but this morning it was a bit of a surprise to discover that I had got The Guardian instead, and so that's my "latest acquisition" (albeit not photographic)! :
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

In a similar vein, two loaves of bread and a large tub of margarine delivered with the milk yesterday but not ordered by us. Milkman says he'll collect them today and take them to the right person, but if they aren't collected they will become our latest (non-photographic) acquisition.

Combined L-frame and grip for my X-T100.
SteveH!

Some people call me 'strange'.
I prefer 'unconventional'.
But I'm willing to compromise and accept 'eccentric'.

Luckily, it won't be needed for that purpose - did a very big stockup of that and other stuff at COSTCO just before the panic & then the lockdown. So "comfortable cr***ing" for the foreseeable future

"wat (ameter)" is the point of getting it then?

It's a nice little curio, it didn't cost me anything, it takes up no space, I might have a use for it some day,...etc.

I've got a Watameter. If you need to know the distance it will provide it - amazingly accurately!

Received today Tokina 500MM Mirror in excellent condition.

I had been looking at a number of mirrors including the 3M-5A and the Tamron SP 500, when this came up which was supposed to have been the same design as the Tamron.. Next stop the moon perhaps.
