Thanks! I think I'll opt for another IIIc or maybe a IIIC. I handled a IIIC once. From my recollection the viewfinder magnification was noticeably larger and brighter, my but the patch was worse... usable but definitely inferior to my IIIc (maybe a bad sample?). I liked the viewfinder but I wasn't so sure if it's worth double the price. However, the Kodak Retina is my favorite 35mm camera so I now think that it is!
