I'd love to collect them, but they don't last long enough in my hands!

and a Ricoh in the middle on the shelf above, how do you like the Diacord (since I know you use your cameras and don't just display them)

The Diacord has a fantastic lens...and has baffling in the film chamber... so image quality wise it's the tops. The Autocord matches or exceeds the IQ and is more convenient to use, and is better made. Both are better than the Yashica Mat.

Truly!? I would have guess such for the Minolta, but not the Ricoh.

Same, here.

Not a collector.

K1000 (3) All acquired during the last 18 months (one loaned out).

ZX-5 (2) Both bought during the mid-90s (and still working) when I switched from Canon.

ZX-L Another recent catch.

Doubt I will get another film body, I don't use them enough.
