I acquired this Yashica CC a few months ago and added it to my Yashica rangefinder family which includes the Lynx 1000, 14e, and GSN. The CC is smaller than all of these but feels almost just as heavy with a wonderful feel of solid heft in the hand. The Yashica CC was introduced in 1970 and is different from most compact rangefinders in that it has a 35mm lens, rather than the usual 40mm or 38mm lens. It also sports a large, fast aperture of f/1.8 which makes shooting in low light a bit easier than with some cameras. In the viewfinder the camera uses the same exposure arrows that the GSN and 14e use, which makes finding the right exposure a snap. The lens on this camera is amazingly sharp, every bit as sharp as the Konica Auto S2, which has become one of my benchmarks against which I measure other lenses. I took the CC out several weeks ago after a snowstorm had passed. I also had my F100 (I posted a picture similar to one selected for this thread taken with the F100 on the MFC forum a while ago) and captured some snowy scenes around our home with both cameras. Using the CC is a real pleasure. I t feels good to hold and is compact enough to be a very convenient camera to carry around. It has been one of the more permanent residents in my camera bag. Here are a few snowy shots from my winter walk.
