Thanks for the heads-up, Chris. I've been thinking about it, and given my
present finances I'll have to pass on your camera package for now. The 10-100
is a great temptation, but I have to remind myself that I don't even have a
camera to put it on at present. It would have to be a "can't pass it up" deal
for me to buy it. I do intend to acquire an ACL eventually, though.

I'm actually quite happy with my CP16R, and I feel like I'm too heavily
invested in the system (zooms, six mags, three chargers, an expensive Nikon
mount adapter) to just get rid of it. In fact, it needs only the Super-16 mod
to be everything I need, and I have someone standing by to do that.

The CP is like a Chevy pick-up while the ACL is a breezy European sports car.
To be honest, most of the time I'd prefer the little sports car to the clunky
pick-up, but it gets the job done and doesn't break. The Aaton, on the other
hand, is a Mercedes, exuding in equal parts elegant design and superb
engineering (and congrats on that).

Hi All
Camera body is now listing on ebay. You can still make an offer if you
want to, before a bid is registered.

The high end lenses (OPF, Zeisses, 300 Kilfitt) are not on ebay yet, but
will be soon. Still holding for list members first...


Who do you have lined up to do your S16 conversion on your CP?  Is it a half
moon or bowtie shutter?  I've seen that Visual products will do a conversion
on any CP, but it's about $2k, if memory serves.
