The Yashica Lynx 14E made 1966-1971. A cool camera with big glass!! with a f/1.4 lens, the fastest fixed lens rangefinder. The camera takes really great photos, feels very solid, indestructible even!!

Fun with this camera.
I haven't had a chance to play with this camera yet. It takes fine photos but I think the meter is no good (who needs a meter anyhow?) it shows signs of a previous tinkerers! work, aperture ring has no click stops and the wind lever screw is scratched so I'm not to keen to open it up and see what else has happened to it.
