  2. Detlef,
    Ausgezeihnet! Really amazing collection. I hope you have time to use at least some of them.
    Grusse aus Norden, K.
  3. Just like me. Overloaded with equipment but never takes any photos.
  4. And I thought I was going some with four F1s! :)
  5. What can I say, sometimes we go overboard. :|
  6. Your collection brings memories. I had an opportunity to purchase a new OD F-1n back in 1981. I was in Japan visiting relatives and was shopping in a local department store. In the camera department, they had an OD F-1n on display. I remember at the exchange rate back then, it would have cost me $400, the same price as a new regular F-1n back in the US. But of course, I would have had to add customs duties to that which would have bumped the price (100%?). Customs had just started cracking down recently on overseas camera purchases. I remember I had to actually register my EF and FT bodies and lenses (including serial #s) at LAX when leaving the US. I had enough money to buy the OD F-1n but not pay the customs duty so I sadly had to decline buying the camera. I regret it to this day...
  7. Detlef, your collection is excellent- and enviable! Is there a story behind your fascination with the F-1, and what
    models might you still be lacking? I noticed that you also have all three versions of the Aspherical FD 55/1.2, that is cool by itself!

    The Olive Drab F-1, Canon High Speed Motor Drive Camera (not officially called "F-1"), and its high speed New F-1
    successor- those are ones I'd like to enjoy someday! The customized, chromed, dayglo snakeskinned versions,
    mmmmmm...not so much! If ever I were to personalize something it might be refinishing a lens to match an ODF-1 body, black lenses on olive never looked quite right to me.
  8. Wow, that is an amazing collection. And there was me thinking I'd gone well OTT when I'd collected one of each A-series
    as one of 13 FD bodies I had. Clearly that 's not even the beginnings of a collection!!!
  9. Ohhhhh, my God.....
  10. Giving you GAS, Fred? Not surprising, seeing as how F-1 could be short for a moniker of yours.
  11. GAS has always been a problem for me. Show me some gear I don't have (yet) and I get itchy fingers. Looking at this has been painful, in that there is NO WAY I could acquire even a tenth of what is shown here. And really, I shouldn't even try. Detlef stands alone in what he has accomplished.
  12. Yes, he's done it, so now you don't have to!
  13. hi anyone !!!!!!
    i seek a new owner for this collection. If possible complete.
    i collect about 40 years to complete it still today !!!!!
    i get 60 years next year and have nobody in my family who is interested in this collection.
    i only want the money i self invested to get it !!!!!!
    please mail me if you are interested or if you have a investor!!!!
    this collection is too unique, to sell it as part for part !!!!!
    thanks Detlef
  14. i seek a new owner for this collection. If possible complete.​
    I am curious to know whether you have considered / investigated selling your collection through Westlicht, which would on the face of it be a natural place to attempt to sell your collection as a whole. Is there a reason not to do that?
    (Aus reinem Neugier würde es mir interessieren, ob Sie daran gedacht haben, Ihre Sammlung durch Westlich versteigern zu lassen: man hätte gedacht, dass das ein natürlicher Verkaufsort für eine solche (ganze) Sammlung als ganze. Spricht 'was dagegen?)
  15. I would love to see Canon Japan acquire your collection, as a corporate monument to lasting quality and the great
    enthusiasm of its customers!
  16. I would love to see Canon Japan acquire your collection, as a corporate monument to lasting quality and the great enthusiasm of its customers!​
    I would prefer it to be Canon UK! But I share the sentiment.
  17. Well Detlef, when you get discouraged, please do contact me here or on the Yahoo group about your Speedlite 500A outfit. I would definitely like to buy that. I already have too many F-1s, not as many as you have, but all the Olympic versions, plus the 3 main versions. and some backups / spares.
  18. Detlef, contact Westlicht if you want to sell the entire lot.
