Thanks, it's just like getting a new copy of Modern or Popular in the mail.
Brings back a lot of memories. My first good camera was a Yashica J7 purchases in late 1966 when I became serious about photography.
Wouter & Ben - Even with image stabilization using good technique is important. One could probably get at least 2 extra stops improvement.
Gus - Glad you are enjoying these.
Brian - I was just messing around with my Nikkormat the other day. I really like its focusing screen.
Rick - I remember that i could take shots with my Rolleicord Vb at pretty slow speeds. I would have the neck strap taut, breathe out slowly then take the shot.
Mike - I beleive the reason that Konica didn't bring out this camera was that the head designer died. He was probably the driving force behind this camera.
Julio - I think I remembered this test when I bought my Pen FT in 1971.
JDM - I just with there was something similar today. Everything seems so equipment oriented.
James - In 1967 I was using a Argus C-3 and was happy as a clam. I couldn't imagine ever needing another camera. Was I wrong.
Makes me wish I would have never thrown out all my old Modern Photography magazines. Even the ads have historical significance now.
