Wow, ogl, that second one is an obvious Olympus XA rip-off (I got one when they were new, and it was my first "real" camera (with aperture priority and split image focusing!))! The XA was a really good camera, which is why I recently re-acquired one.
business espionage of's almost 100% copy of Olympus XA
The original model, the XA, was sold from 1979 to 1985.

Even exposure is the same: 10 s -1/500 s

USSR's Elicon was started on 1986...Funny. Very rare camera. Not above ~500-1000 cameras were

The name of camera was Schoolboy (1962-1969 years: 550 000 cameras were produced)
60*60 mm (120 film) lens 75/8

Wow, an f/8 lens with the film speeds of the 1960's? I hope them schoolboys brought their tripods...

I mentioned in an earlier post, somthing chunkey would be nice, I got shot down, one making accusations one is a drunk, then moderater giving me the speel on language. Fair enough, language I apoligise, as for the other hmmm, however now seeing camera I like it, 2 concerns though.
1. Battery life, not sure about K5 my K7 goes pear shaped really quick with live view.
2. Conectivity: I really hope this cam has a wired remote.
Will I buy now as seen on some pre purchase( B&H have US 750, last time I checked) sites, NO. I been watching fugi X, olympus and Q. I ha been dodging the the K5 for some time and waiting for the next best thing that suits me.
