It’s the 35mm rangefinder everybody wants: the Yashica Electro 35. This is the last iteration of the Electro 35, the GSN, and I’ve updated my review of it here.

I believe I had what was an earlier iteration of this, branded for Lafeyette Radio Electronics corporation: the Lafeyette Electrick 2.8. It was similar in design and likewise a good working camera.
