In 1979 I bought an SL and 400/6.8 Telyt new, and in 1980 I bought a 60
macro new.  In 1984 I bought an R4s new.  Everything else has been purchased
used: 'flex, 4-SL, 2-SL2, 90 'cron, 35 'cron, 35 Elmarit, 21 s-a, 2-R4sP, 50
'cron, 100 APO, 135, 180 Elmarit, 75-200 vario, 250 telyt, 2-280/4.8, 280/4,
400/5.6, 560/5.6, 560/6.8.

NOTE: I never had all this stuff at once though sometimes it felt like it.
Current inventory:

1 'flex
2 SL bodies in full working condition
1 semi-functional SL
1 non-functional SL
1 SL in pieces, for parts for the two above
2 SL2
35 Elmarit
50 'cron
60 macro
90 'cron
100 APO
280/4
400/6.8
560/6.8

my daughter has the remaing R4sP, with a 60 macro given to her by a friend
of mine.
