    Just something small and light to throw in my bag as backup when overseas, and perhaps for my friend to use. Obviously it needs to be guaranteed to work as I will rely on its usage if my Leica fails :D

    some examples of what I am looking for,

    fed, zorki ect (as long as you can guarantee it works perfect!)

    How about an Olympus XA? It's a rangefinder, usually works good and extremely portable? There's one for sale here in the classifieds.

    See my FS thread "FS: Long list of things":

    There are several Zorkis and Feds and other cameras (how about a Retina IIIS? :cool:) which are in good working order (most of which I've run film through as well). Shipping costs to Oz though.... :sad:
