    Do not know anything about that camera, hope you enjoy using it. But, you have a very special flickr account. Wonderful photos.

    The Yashica Lynx is one sweet camera. The Lynx 1000 and Lynx 5000 are great too.

    I have the 5000e and love it. Got rid of all my other Yashicas, my only other rangefinder is the Argus C-3.

    Wow, you seem like me (like fast glass), we both have the Mamiya with the 80 f1.9 and now the Lynx 14?! I keep my Lynx 14 with 400 @800 and shoot it in door, avail light, the Mamiya 1.9 with the 50 (PanF) outside a lot. Well if you want to really be like me, add an XA to the kit....those three are the trifecta...

    As I said when you showed your Mamiya set, you've a heck of an eye. Stay safe

    Yes, the Lynxes are nice cameras, especially with that big chunck of glass on the front. Agree that they are excellent portraits, great work.

    Sorry, no Flickr, I do post some images to the Gallery here at APUG; although, one needs to be a subscriber to see the APUG Gallery. I highly recommend...

    Interestingly Lynx 14 is a boat class name. Its 14 feet and extremelly modern , sexy in red and white and its plans are around 100 british pounds from Selway Fisher.
    I loved the pictures , girl seem so innocent but how many foxes are running in her mind without tails touch each other.
