    I use to use a Yashica T4 with good results (it has the Zeiss T* lens). My wife uses a Fuji camera and loves it. The negs are very sharp and she has had no trouble with it since it was purchased.

    I've been thinking of getting myself a GA645. They even have a zoom model. This would be the best point and shoot.

    That's the GA645zi. The current Yashica is the T5. Agree that the GR1 and Olympus Mju are good. Though I'd probably go for a Contax T or Rollei 35 if I felt flush.

    I've got a picture I took in Italy 25 years ago with an Olympus XA/Kodachrome 64 . Blown up to 16x 20, still looks great.

    I'd try to find a used XA or XA2...what a lens in a fine little camera.. DB

    Nope, no Hobo for me! I'm happy with the Deardorff and cyanotypes.

    Someone named a camera after me? I'm touched.
    Do not question what you have not done, question what you will not try.

    I recently aquired a Konica Hexar AF with fixed 35mm f2 lens. It is a pretty capable performer. With my aging eye-sight (47 years) I'm beginning to appreciate auto-focus (I can't believe I'm admitting to this!) Anyway, even for someone like me who loves older mechanical cameras (of all formats) this Konica is an easy camera to like. It has the same quality feel, and is indeed made of metal rather than plastic. It gets my vote as a quick to use "happy-snapper" and also capable of quality results.
