Konica's answer to the Pentax spotmatic. (I believe they both lack a self-timer) The viewfinder is quite large so framing is a joy if you're used to a modern crop sensor dslr. It has shutter priority mode so you only need to compose and ensure the needle is not sitting outside of its range. Alternatively you can choose aperture and set the shutterspeed as you go. The camera works well in varied weather conditions and was easy to operate even with gloves. The body and lens are scratch free. No brassing or scuffs on the body. The battery compartment is corrosion free. The meter and shutter speeds are accurate. Unfamiliar with Konica? They were acquired by Sony in the 80s. l likely for their lens quality because the 50mm 1.7 is sharp. The film loading mechanism is pretty interesting. You don't need to articulate the rewind lever to insert and remove film canisters I also have a 135mm konica telephoto lens for sale.
