    The RC is nice. My favorite thing about the camera is how easily I can carry it waist level and glance down to change the aperture or shutter speed. It also hides in your hand nicely.

    I've got both these cameras in hand now. The GSN arrived yesterday and the RC was waiting for me when I got home today. Both look really nice. The RC is MUCH smaller. Will have fun playing with them now. The RC may match my initial goal of a nice carry around camera better, but I like the looks and feel of the GSN too.

    The GSN focus seems a little "dry" like it could use some lube. Is this something that may be necessary? Maybe it's just my technique. It only seems bothersome while holding the camera up to focus, when part of the camera weight is being supported by the ring and turning it. If the weight is supported by my hand or on a table, it turns much more smoothly and effortlessly.

    Will just live with it for now. Otherwise the camera if in VERY NICE condition.

    I finally got the film in for processing, got it back today. Very impressed with both of these cameras (GSN and RC). The metering was spot on, at least it was once I remembered to set the proper ISO - digital and DX coding really spoil us.

    I think both the GSN and the RC will be keepers!!! Very fun and compact. Both lenses seem really sharp, will have to use them some more obviously. Shot a roll of 200 and 400 with each, seems the 400 will be the go-to for the RC. It had a little difficulty handling deep shade with 200. Might just have to shoot manually with a tripod in these cases. I was impressed with how accurate the automatic settings worked in both of these cameras.

    Had no problems with the GSN focus today, was probably just me. I'm happy with my two little gems.

    This is all you guy's fault...

    In the mail from Yuri (fedka.com), not one, but TWO FSU rangefinders...Kiev 4AM w/Helios-103 53/1.8 and Zorki 4K w/Jupiter-8 50/2. I will post more when they get here. I am a little concerned about QA issues with the late model Kiev, but we will see. The thing that really concerns me is that I am still really interested in getting a Bessa R2A or R3A too!

    A Hoya 48mm Lens shade for my Canonet QL17 G-III. Fits perfectly. Looks good too.

    However, it' worth posting for posterity that the lowly Kalt 49mm threaded metal hood together with a 48-49mm step up ring makes an admirable substitute. In fact, this combo may be superior in that it creates a deeper, darker recess for the lens without any vignetting or metering issues. The only drawback is that it's slightly more viewfinder intrusive. But not too much.
