In the late 70's I fell in love with an all black bodied Ricoh XR2 in the military exchange, but as an E-4 I had to save up a couple of months to buy it. To make a long story short, by the time I saved the money, it had already been sold and they never got another one in. Now, the last thing I need is another camera, but I never forgot that beauty and a few nights ago I saw one on Ebay for $19 and bought it. Can anyone tell me about this camera? I can figure out all the controls, very similar to my FE with the addition of an eyepiece blind and lack of motor drive capability, but would like to know of any short commings or strengths.
