new camera toy!

I've been wanting a medium format film camera FOREVER. One of my favorite photographers on flickr has this model so I've been slowly collecting bits and pieces. I started with just the body and got it for a great deal on ebay. It's missing the battery cover but it still works without it. I took it to a local camera store to get it cleaned and the owner of the store sold me a lens for cheap. I've had the body for at least 7 months but I still couldn't use it because I didn't have a viewfinder or screen. I got the view finder on ebay but it took forever for a screen to appear. Almost 9 months AFTER I got the body, someone finally listed a screen so now I finally have a complete set! I downloaded the manual and I just ordered some film for it. Hopefully next weekend, I can take it out to play!
