It has the Radionar 80 2.9

It does, but the rangefinder windows are small and round, rather than square (matching the composition window)... Here's a quick shot.

One more shot... I really can't get over (this is my first folder camera) how compact these are for MF. The first photo really makes the camera look far larger than it is, so here's one more with my Ricoh GR alongside for scale.
Gorgeous camera!

Not bad for $100

I almost bid on a ZX-5N with a 28-80 for about $35. It went for $36, LOL

Yashica 35 1958.

This is the first 35mm Yashica from the Yashica factory. A predecessor to the Lynx, It came with a 1.9 or 45mm 2.8 lens. more solid than later models. Has a rangefinder, but no meter. Copal MXV shutter. I much prefer this manual version to the later automated electro series 35.

That's quite handsome ... and I bet a bit smaller than my GSN (giant thing it is).

Nah! I've done better.

See this nice little Nikon FM with AI'd Nikkor 50mm f1.4 S-C?




Got that in London for 30, including a small nylon bag.

Yashica made some nice cameras, not only the rangefinder 35's, but also the Yashicamat, very reasonably called the "poor man's Rolleiflex."

Imagine trying to use that Speed Graphic to get a shot in the middle of a firefight. Oof.

If I were to try that right now it'd definitely be "Oof" - Out of Focus.

Also consider night or indoor photography and hauling a pocket full of 40-watt sized screw-base flash bulbs and stuffing one after another into a Kalart flash gun while adjusting the exposure from memory.
