    Sorry, I can't count.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    Haha, yea its been my backup for awhile now and I really like it's quirks, especially the "swirl bokeh" when shot at f3.5 due to the yashikor lens. It looks beautiful for portraits. I just have alot of gear right now some stuff I've yet to use. I'd like to get this camera in the hands of someone who can use it

    Well my wife has told me that if I get another camera someone has to leave and where as I am tempted to get rid of one of the children I think she might mean me.

    Despite what everyone will say about the Yashikor being "only" a triplet, remember that it's still a coated lens made on decently modern facilities, so it handles both b&w and colour very well.

    I've printed truly nice 11x14 out of my Yashica D negatives. I sold it a long time ago when I bought a Mamiya C330, but recently I got a Rolleiflex and I found what I've been missing: a tight little camera, light and nimble. It's a Moleskine camera, to jot down visual notes.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    I too make nice 11x14 prints, and even nice 15x15 prints on 16x20 paper from my Yashica C which also has the triplet lens. It's a great lens. A teensy bit swirly in the background if it's busy and dark. Sharp sharp area of focus, excellent bokeh. A great lightweight medium format camera Yashica made.
