I highly recomend the Lynx 14E, I use this beauty all the time. With a f1.4 lens, this camera can do it all. Outdoor like a pro; indoor, load some 400, push to 800, shoot at 1.4....call it a day. It is a bit heavy but I like it...this camera is a tank, built well. Can work in all manual too, battery is just for the lightmeter, but you dont need to use it....
Found usually $100'ish or less on the bay (where I got mine, has worked perfect for a while).
Also, if the 14E isnt what you want, sure there are many others from Yashica, I once saw the below, a nice user review of the Yashica Electro...
Alla cameras are sexy: the young, the old, the tall, the small, the fat, the slim. I find it's easier to be sexy for a camera than for a woman.
...me too, it's started many arguments with my wife...

I'll definitely have to try one out...
Yes, it is really nice and cheap to get into the Yashica world of these wonderful rangefinders. I started out with a Lynx 14e then followed that up with most of the rest of the models even though I don't have all of them listed. Wonderful cameras, you must get a couple. I believe all but one I have gotten off the Bay, but only because I hadn't found here or KEH.
