So the K-mount Chinons are well worth looking into, pentaprism, split-screen focusing screen, ae-lock, 1/2000 shutter etc. all the goodies, for tens of dollars...
Chinons and Riochs are very good buys. I have both M and K mounts Chinons the only weakness is the winder, sounds like a sewing machine. I tend to shoot with the CM CE 3s more than the CM4.
