I wouldn't mind having a Minox B. I wouldn't care about the meter though it would be a bonus if it worked - I just like mechanical cameras that don't rely on batteries. And if the original Minox is too expensive, the B is a bargain.

My Minox C uses a mercury battery, can be utilized with other kinds of batteries but you have to open the film chamber to change the battery. And when it comes to replacements for mercury batteries, well you know, they have to be changed all the time.

Makes a great backup camera for backpacking...
