    Canon Demi EE17, in good shape, as long as it functions as it should, and the glass is clean and clear (cleaning marks are unavoidable with a camera like this, so that's fine, just not fungus or deep scratches).

    I haven't ever messed around with half frame, so these sound like fun. :D

    Thanks in advance!

    Half Frame

    Don't overlook the Olympus Half-Frames. Regarding the Demi cameras, I had a Demi as well as the motor-wind equivalent. Same lens, and basic body, exposure control, etc. The lens was nice and sharp.

    I fear the olympus system is a bit too... Pricey. I was Looking at the F series, and don't need something like that for what I want a half frame camera for. Although, the EM is close to what I am looking for. I do enjoy my Canonet, which is why I'm looking for it's little sibling.
