I agree!  Pretty impressive, and into the light also.  I recently got a 115mm Pro-Tessar that mounts in a similar fashion on my Contaflex IV.  It looks quite sharp through the finder; need to see actual results on film.

Great set of pictures, Phil.  I think I had one of these cameras at one time (not sure if it was this specific model), but never used it.  That C&O museum looks like a place to visit, for sure.  I love the sweeping vistas of this area, which you capture so well.

A basic P&S with not many user controls, but a nice 35mm lens.

It will come soon enough.  But we still have to deal with that pesky groundhog.

An auxiliary lens for the Zeiss Contaflex I and II that converts the fixed normal f2.8/45mmTessar lens into an 85mm short telephoto good for portraits.

Photos taken on Kodak T-Max 400, utilizing three Canon lenses:
FDn 50/1.8; FD 35/3.5; and FD 135/3.5

Roundabout Demolition by br1078phot, on Flickr

I found this Canon T70 body at an antique store for $15, so I couldn't pass it up.  It's a polycarbonate bodied, consumer oriented camera that pre-dates the EOS line. 

The main features are: Manual Focusing with FDn/FD lenses; four exposure modes (Program, Program Wide, Program Tele, and Tv); Average and Partial (AE L) metering; Self Timer; Automatic Powered Film Transport with Power Rewind; Remote Control Cable Socket; and all power supplied by two AA alkaline cells.  On the back there is a pocket for putting the end flap from your film box as a reminder, and a thumb grip pad.  The tripod socket is on the lens centerline.  The three pin accessory shoe accepts the 244T flash unit.

Film for the test was Kodak T-Max 400, because I wanted the extra contrast without filters.  The metering system worked extremely well, handling all situations as presented.  I would have liked to have had all FDn lenses, but then this proves it works just as well with the senior series.  It's nice to have the confidence of being able to use older lenses that you are familiar with the image quality they can achieve.

The test subject is a group of buildings slated for demolition by VDOT, so they can build a roundabout at the Cloverdale, VA I-81 exit.  They had to buy a lot of property to do this, and eliminated a large truck stop.  There was a barn that sat in the middle of this group of buildings that used to house an antique store, but it's already been torn down, which opened up the view to the other structures.  A couple of foot bridges lead to a workshop of some kind, and an open field.  The house last was used by a remodeling business, which left a lot of materials stacked up on the porches.  There was nothing historically significant about the place, it was very run down, and it had been surrounded by the highway and several large businesses, so it's time to repurpose it.  But now you'll remember what it was like.

I got this camera from a good friend across the other side of the country (Thank You, Ron), and figured it was good to use while wearing gloves.  Good thing, because it was 22F/-6.5C while I shot this roll of film.  Click on the link at the end to see the entire set, along with full commentary.

The bars were added much later to keep idiot tourists from falling in.
