    Leica copy is less expensive.Here is a Zorki 1E with 50mm f3.5 Industar 22.
    FSU lenses other than the 50 mm tend to be expensive as folks put them on Leicas.

    No, but I certainly consider my FED-2s pretty small. And the FSU Contax clones (the Kiev X series) aren't big either.

    Certainly you can get some dogs with the FSU bodies, but if you just assume you're going to have it serviced before serious use they're solid as a tank. And the glass is excellent. Maybe not Leica quality, but way better than any of my work can show up.

    I don't have half a dozen. But I have several. One at each place I'm often "looking for my camera" so I've always got one. They are my "go to" 135 solution now.

    The camera catches light. The photographer catches life.

    Even if the light meter doesn't work, you can still set the shutter speed and aperture manually.

    Yep, apparently it's functioning correctly.
    If this falls through it's back to the drawing board.

    A ricoh 500G would meet your needs. It's small, pretty good lens with manual and shutter priority manual. Works in manual mode without battery. Plus it looks good too!

    They look like nice cameras and they are on the list if the Retina is no good.
    I can get it for a week to test.

    Ok my friend lent me his Retina IIS for a week.
    The shutter is slow to close at any speed below 1/30 second.

    Does anyone know how to get to the shutter?
    I've located some little screws on the lens barrel and on the focusing ring at the front.
    Should I just unscrew those and see what comes up next?
