    The only post I saw about the swapmeet was mine. Didn't anyone else go?

    I got some great bargains.

    It was my first swapmeet!!! But I went there without the intention of
    getting anything (and not carrying any money ... had to pass on a
    Nikkor DC 135/2 for $300 as a result!!!) ... Saw some good bargains
    :)

    Did got 2 rolls of Tech-Pan 135/36 for $2 each though :)

    Oh, some one offer me to swap a F801+AF35-70mm with the FA+Noct-Nikkor
    that I'm carrying ... I guess you'll see all kind of people in a
    swapmeet :)

    I ended up scoring a Qunatum flash for 100, a pair of metz 402's for $10 and
    a few other odds and sods for not much - Sold a tripod and had someone take
    my number for the plaubel 4x5. A little interest in the F1N's, but no cash
    changed hands. Surprisingly a few of my old tafe students turned up
    *WITHOUT MY PROMPTING* (!!!) and you met Steve (see the next post up the
    ranks re cibachrome) who bought an MZ-50 for $50

    :)

    ...and it was nice meeting you :)

    That Quantum was a bargain, I was convincing myself to buy it when you
    obviously snatched it out from under me. Tripods are always good sellers. I
    suspected you would be bringing those F1N home. My f90x with an 85mm f1.8
    beats an MZ50 anyday ;P

    And speaking of photo opportunities ................ I am watching the news
    now. Another reason to live in Perth. :(

    it had a few 'issues' so I had to do a minor repair befoire it started
    behaving it's self :)
