    Good morning, j-dogg;

    Why should I try to do that? As a college kid, I really wanted the Yashica Lynx-14, but the old finances just could not stretch that far, so I had to settle for the Yashica Lynx-1000. Three years ago, I finally did get that Yashica Lynx-14, and it is still a heavy enjoyable camera. A nice bit of equipment with a strong emotional connection.

    The Yashica Lynx-1000 stayed with me for almost three years and took photographs of many events, trips and places, and people. I really did want to keep it, but the finances after leaving school had not yet risen to the point where I could keep the rangefinder and buy the Minolta SR-1b also. The Minolta was my main camera for many years, and then it just "disappeared" in the early stages of the death of a marriage. There was a rumor about some very nice yard sales at the house where I used to live, but was no longer allowed to enter.

    Now that the years of my working association with the Office of Support Enforcement are over, the Yashica Lynx-1000 along with the Yashica Lynx-14 that I wanted, and even a replacement Minolta SR-1b have been acquired. Discovering that my paycheck really was my paycheck again has allowed the latent tendancy for GAS to really become an obsession in my life. No, the "new" SR-1b is not really the one that I used to take all of those photographs of my children, but it really is a pretty nice camera. Yes, life really is pretty good now.

    j-dogg, enjoy the Yashica Lynx-14, or the Lynx-14E, whichever one it is. They really are nice cameras, and we can work around the difficulty with the battery if required.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Love the all-metal lens. This should be called the Like-a.

    It will need light seals, and eventually a battery. NO fungus in the lens. Absolutely flawless copy. Everything works.

    It is a BEAST!!! This week I'm going to work on getting the light seals done and getting a battery for it.
