    WTB: A cheap small 50mm + RF or fixed lens RF camera as backup

    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

    some examples of what I am looking for,

    fed, zorki ect (as long as you can guarantee it works perfect!)
    japanese fixed lens rangefinder cameras

    How about an Olympus XA? It's a rangefinder, usually works good and extremely portable? There's one for sale here in the classifieds.
    Please check out my website www.amoxomphotography.com and APUG Portfolio .....

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

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