    Anyway, not to discourage you from buying this camera, but personally, I would want a faster lens than that. Recently I saw a Yashica Electro GSN 35 on sale at B&S for $90, and I've seen them go even cheaper than that in the past. It's a nice camera with aperture priority mode, and good for long exposure because it gives automatic exposure down to shutter speeds as slow as 30 seconds. One source I read says that longer times have regularly been reported as well. Not to mention the very bright 45mm f/1.7 lens. Put ISO 400 film in this, or even 800, and you should be able to do most things.

    Check out this link for more on classic cameras (and the Yashica Electro GSN 35), recommended models, and how to buy an old camera safely:

    Thanks Andrew (forgive me if i got it wrong)

    Saw this http://forums.clubsnap.com/showthread.php?t=169274 thinking of making a 2 digit offer for it; considering that i may need to send it to camera hospital for reconditioning. Have been eyeing the GSN35 for quite awhile but how does it compare to the FEDs?

    Sorry, what's an FED?

    Not sure how bad the fungus on the lens is, since it's hard to see through all that camera shake but the viewfinder obviously needs cleaning. Keep this sale in view at the moment, but post in the B&S thread first once you know which model you're looking for. There's this nagging thought on my mind that it will cost a bomb to repair most old cameras or to clean the fungus off it, so it may not be worth your while to do so.

    I think that if you decide to get the GSN 35, there should be a few available at a reasonable price. In the past I contacted the seller in this thread regarding his piece, and he claims that it's working perfectly with no fungus:

    So i've become the rangefinder hellboy eh? Haa Haa!!!

    Here's a copy of what i wrote for a guy in the past when he was considering a rangefinder system.

    ------------------------
    Fixed lens rangefinders might not be new but they do give you a feel of how a rangefinder operates. Before sinking money into a system that's foreign to you, it is strongly recommended for you to feel a couple of rangefinders first. Gandy has a site on choosing your first rangefinder camera. http://www.cameraquest.com/rfbuy.htm and one about fixed lens rangefinders. http://www.cameraquest.com/com35s.htm
    Karen Nakamura has a good site too. http://www.photoethnography.com/equipment.html
    She has a large section on used rangefinder cameras, recommendations, reviews. Alot of her advice is quite practical.

    specs on voigtlander lenses? http://www.cameraquest.com/voigtlen.htm
    Here's one about canon rangefinder lenses. http://www.dantestella.com/technical/canoleic.html
    We can't leave out zeiss lenses can we? http://www.cameraquest.com/ZM%20lenses.htm

    A couple of lens reviews. http://luminous-landscape.com/review...nsreview.shtml

    Put's review of leica lenses. http://www.imx.nl/photosite/leica/leicaM.html
    But do filter what you read from there. It's known that he has a bias towards leica lenses. Though he does do some reviews of voigtlander and zeiss lenses too. http://www.imx.nl/index.html

    It's a pretty wide range of lenses out there in the rangefinder world. Those lenses that you mentioned are mostly top of the range other than for the Nokton up there.
    What sort of look are you looking for in a lens? Classic with a pastel look? The Canon 50/1.5 Serenar is decent. Contrasty? The voigtlander 50/1.5 is alright in that area.
    -----------------

    Here's some advice someone gave me a year ago.

    "Fact is, most cameras sold here on RFF go for less than e-bay would bring. I can understand if somebody sells off alot of stuff he tries to ask something close to what e-bay would bring him.
    Don;t give it up, still lotsa offers will show up soon.
    You should also look for Konica Auto S16, S2, S3 cameras; minolta hi-matics (esp. 7, 7S, 7SII the smallest version, and 9), and variations of the yashica electro 35 series (g,gs,gsngt,gtn,gx,cc,etc - from these, the gx and cc are small sized the rest are somewhat big, but all great)
    the canonets also can be smaller or bigger; i wonder if small is important to you (to me it is not). Small means the size of the 28 you almost bought.
    And lots of similar olympus rf's but i don't know them very well; the SP(n) is the only one i know a bit and it's a fantastic camera (with spot metering!!!).
    Most important is to get one that works good; all these cameras are of high quality if they are not busted."

    --------

    There's a gal here who's selling her MG-1. http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...ad.php?t=20024

    If it were me, i would buy it from her and send it to Greyhoundman for servicing. Then have it sent back to me. Why the trouble? Cos i know his hands are what i would trust. My Yashicha came from him.

    There's this great thread which discusses on which fixed lens rangefinder has a great lens. Very worthwhile reading.
    http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...ad.php?t=19576

    Generally rangefinders are sold for pretty expensive in Singapore. Yes, i consider S$100+ expensive considering they usually are not in as good a condition as mine. Camera itself without shipping, my yashica was US30. Klose, i would try to be organising a local RFF meet sometime next month. Which means you would see a couple of us with RFs meeting. It's a great opportunity to touch and see an RF camera and to talk to the guys. I would hold off on buying a FED.

    Alternatively, i could ask around the local RF community if there is anyone who might want to part with their beloved RF cameras. Usually, those of us who have RF cameras, have too many of them.

    Personally, i like the Konica Auto S2. It's a beauty os a camera and usuable on manual mode. Why do i like the Auto S2? Cos it has a heck of a lens! And i'm spoiled with using a fully manual camera with a soft shutter. Here's a thread on Matt's classic cameras. http://homepage.mac.com/mattdenton/p...gefinders.html

    Don't focus on cheap deals. Focus on getting a camera which would make you happy then go find a value for money deal for it.

    A russian camera? Here's a page for ya.

    Oleg is a good guy at repairing russian cameras and selling them of for resonable prices. But to say the least, i feel FEDs viewfinders are squinty. I like bright viewfinders.
