    I stand corrected on the metering. As I said, I havent looked at these cameras in years. Maybe I'll look into getting one since they are alot less money than an Autocord. I still love my D though.

    I loved my D as well. First "real" camera I owned. And, you are right, the ability to make multiple exposures gave great creative flexibility. Swapped it for a Contax III. I once approached my sister-in-law and asked if she would sell me her D. Her response was unprintable here.
    I once worked a summer shooting children's home portraits. We were issued two Ds. They were bounced around in steamer trunks; used daily; with three AC strobes. At the end of a year of such use, they just tossed them, no matter what. I was told every one still worked fine when they were sent away.
    At present I have a Yashica 12; purchased in Japan by my college roomate, ca 1966; but I rarely use a TLR any more. I also had a Yashica 635--a "D" with 35mm adapter kit capable.
