Reminds me of those stories about Leicas and Contax suff being swapped by desperate Germans, for British and American army rations, soap and cigarettes, after WW2.

It wasn't just cameras. I remember seeing a collection of seriously rare and valuable Marklin large scale trains on Antiques Roadshow which the owner had obtained in Germany immediately after the war. I wouldn't be surprised if they'd been bartered for a few ration packs.

That is priceless. I have had (very sleepless) nights recently when I wouild have happily swopped my 9 month old son for a 6 pack - but never my Pentax
No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more
