    Neither. Go for the excellent Ricoh GR-1V.

    IMHO, all the above camera make the mark. But the big difference is that the Yashica T5 wins in aspect that it is "damn" easy to operate. Even my wife who is "photo-illiterate" could bring back nice holiday photo with that camera.
    So,...it's one more point for Yasica T5.
    But the camera very hard to get nowadays.

    For how a mjuII look like handle by a lady...

    Look here

    If you are very particular about exposure controls, ricoh GR1s/GR1v is good. (IMHO, never used this cam before)

    But the lens is 28mm

    A detail page on GR-1

    I knew that was gonna come up from ckiang.

    Anyway, I wanted to get this in the beginning of my film point n shoot search, but I guess it was a little overkill for what I needed it for. And over twice the price of the mjuII as well.
