Thanks for the replies. The Canon 17, here in UK, is up in price compared with Yashicas and Minolta RFs. I have also been looking at the Konica S2, besides the Petri models. There is a Petri 7s on ebay UK, which has been recovered in lime green leather. It looks astounding, and the price is already up to 42.00 on bids. The Yashica Electro 35 was my first RF, followed by the Minolta Hi-Matic 9; the the Yashica MG1. I have been quite taken by their feel and appearances. Perhaps after 1 more RF I should call it a day, otherwise ........ ?
