  2. Film camera prices are rising steadily and it's not just the likes of the Hasselblad XPAN, Contax T3 or Olympus Mju II that are increasing in value.

  3. The '69 K4 has been my more-or-less daily carry camera for about a year and a half. Recently it's been wearing the '36 Sonnar from my Contax. The J-8 behaves very much like like a coated Sonnar; the really nice one is the 85/2 J-9, and I like the 35/2.8 J-12 as well. Lenses for the Kiev seem to be more reliable than the screwmount versions
