6 rolls of lightly outdated film.
4x FujiColor Superia C200 135/24
1x FujiColor C200 135/36
1x Tudor Colour ISO200 135/24.

All expired around 2019 so should be good to go!

Add to that 2x Jessops Pan 100, 135/36. Exp 2008 so will be interesting to see what the results are.

Asahi Pentax Super Takumar 1:4/150mm M42, hopefully to go with the bellows experiment.

One of the "silent wonders" from the Takumar range - I doubt you'll be disappointed

Had the 105mm Takumar arrive today too

Didn't really need it really, but price too good to turn down

I'm waiting for John to give us a cheeky flash. Seriously!

On the acquisition front, I've seen another A*135/1.8 for sale with what looks to be a bad case of separation in the elements. I'm taking a bit of a gamble on it and getting it sent over to Brian Gohacki (DCShooter of Pentax Forums fame) to have a look at. If it gets repaired, I get a user's example of a lens I want to keep. If not, I'll be testing it out and probably putting it back up for what I paid (FA*85 money :S)

Delivered this morning, a Russian Tank, or it could be a Jupiter-11A 135MM F2.8 in M42 mount
