Yashica 35/MF

Hard to find anything on this camera. It does use 2AA's to run the flash and a A76 button to fire up the meter. Anyone here use this zone focus?

A few retro photographers here in Japan use this camera, and I have actually seen a few new examples remaining in a couple of camera stores. An article I reading a Japanese camera magazine described the MF positively, saying that it was an excellent value, and a great picture taker.

I own a Yashica 35MF which I purchased back in 2005 on Ebay. Cosmetically it was perfect and also worked well.. However, I did send it for a CLA (about $50 back in 2005). It has performed beautifully ever since. It has been with me to France on vacation and it does a superb job when loaded with Kodak TMAX 400 film. The 38mm f2.8 is sharp and contrasty. All in all, a very good snapshot camera. The only downside is limited shutter speeds; 1/60 @ f2.8 to 1/250 @ f16
