Thanks for replying! I have never used scale-focus before and I've only read a few things about it, but it doesn't seem like something that would work for me.

The Yashica looks good (never heard of it before )! Compared to other SLR cameras of that era, Nikon and Canon seem rather expensive (4-5x as much)!!

I read the other thread before I started my own, and the OP seems to want different things and the recommendations seem to focus heavily on compactness, which isn't my biggest issue.

The Pentax K1000, Minolta XE-1, Minolta SRT101 (Minolta on the whole, camera and lenses, seem to be the cheapest used), Olympus OM1 and Yashica FX3 (probably not the Zeiss lens, which is pretty expensive on eBay) look like good options, but I can't find any information on how good the meters are and how easy it is to focus manually.

Any ideas/other suggestions?
