So I might be getting my hands on a Konica Hexar (AF) Silver shortly. The description for the camera says "auto date". I've tried researching this, but everything that comes up is for the more common Black model. Even online camera models aren't for the Silver version, I've found. I just want to make sure, before I take the plunge, that "auto date back" can be turned off? If not, is the date marking on the back of the photo, or between frames, or is it right on the photo, like a tacky '80s point and shoot time stamp?

For those who have used the camera, how do you find the controls? I've heard they can be a bit awkward, but I'm sure I could get used to it.

A while back, I also read that the Hexar can have trouble focusing through glass/windows. I've tried to locate where I read this, but I can't find it. I think it was on RFF. Anyways, can anyone confirm this to be an issue? I've seen some, not many, photos focused fine through windows, so I'm not sure. I recall reading it had something to do with the camera's unique AF system.

Thanks and Happy New Year!
