like 3/4 of a year ago i decided i wanted to make a step upwards from from 5DII and switch to medium format. as a good friend uses a contax 645 with superb results it was a no brainer which system i wanted.
i bought a nice contax kit and waited for my christmas holiday to pick it up in germany, i work and live in china for the time being.
i shot the first roll and the images were all quite dark, and the spot metering seemed not to work at all.
i contacted the seller who denied to know anything about it, but later on told me, he would take it back for testing and if the testing would confirm my problems i would get my money back. i asked for his address, since i threw away the package with the "sending letter" but that was it, no response whats so ever. he will hear from my lawyer soon.
so i was on the lookout for another nice copy of this camera and i got lucky, it also included the 80mm and 35mm, batterygrip.
it did cost a bit more but hell, its the 35mm right?
so since i was back in china, the seller shipped the camera to my fathers home, there he checked it and it looked all good. so the plan was to ship the camera in a camera bag and package to berlin to my companies office, and wait for a colleague to bring it to me at the next business trip.
that was like 4 months ago, none of the colleagues, including the boss wouldnt dare to bring it to me, how nice.
so since my next vacation grows closer i told me IT boss to just take it back to hamburg, where i could pick it up myself while on vacation.
so yesterday i was reminding him twice and the office secretary once to not to forget the bag.
this morning i woke up and checked my emails and found an email from my boss.
telling me that he took the bag BUT FORGOT IT IN THE TRAIN FROM BERLIN TO HAMBURG............
ITS (insert F word here) UNBELIEVABLE
in the meantime i acquired a p45+ i wanted to use with the camera, i would say my next vacation is ruined, somebody does not want me to become happy with this camera system!
sorry but i really needed to write this down
