Thanks mate.

I was keen on the Yashi Electro 35 as a 'compact' rangefinder. I was unsure of the ability to go full manual though? What lens does it have?

Before I got my AE-1 I wanted a compact rangefinder with full manual override and a lens faster than F/2. I struggled to find one :(. The Oly 35 SP was an option but too expensive.

Dude, that thing looks pristine...I might have to look into getting one of those...I would love to have a small lightweight rangefinder with a wide fast lens that doesn't break the bank. :)

Could stick with Canon and get the Canonet G-III QL17. Had one for a while - beautiful camera.

That's not just an Electro 35, it's an Electro 35 GSN (hot shoe). It does not have a "manual" mode, but will fire at 1/500", 1/30" (flash sync) or 'B'. It's not as compact as the Canonets, of which the G-III QL17 is the best and has a better focusing ring (a stem). I have both cameras and use each (along with two Fujica 35-SEs, f/2.8 and f/1.9, and V2 that is getting rebuilt by Mark Hama ATM - see pic). The Yashica has better optics, but the Canonet is no slouch. The Canonet also has meter information in the finder so you can tell both shutter speed and aperture. The Yashica only tells you aperture. You can get batteries for the Yashica (requires 2 and it's voltage-regulated), but the Canonet takes the 1.35V mercury oxides, which are no longer available. Thus you need to buy the Wein cells (which are only good for a few months) or the CRIS MR-9 adapter for 1.5V silver oxides. This adapter regulates the voltage to 1.35V and the silver oxide battery will last a few years with normal use.

I have updated manuals in PDFs for the Canonet and the Yashica if you want them.

I miss having my Cannonet. :( Sold all my MF and my M42 gear so I can focus only on two camera bodies (to cure my G.A.S.). Stuck with the Nikkormat Ft2 and a Series E 50mm. Heavy, but compact.

Here are a few shots from my Salyut-C and Nikkormat + Series E 50mm.

Aww man...was doing research on a Yashica Electro 35 and stumbled upon a bunch of images from a Contax G1...definitely a big price difference from the Yashica but wow are the Contax frames super sharp...Those Zeiss lenses sure are no joke :) I may end up going that route instead...I feel so indecisive!

those are newton rings. your scanner glass does not have an anti-newton coating. it has to do with the way a piece of film sits on the glass.

I get better dynamic range out of my scanner (Screen Cezanne Elite) than a 5DII. I am beginning to warm up to the labor of dusting in order to enjoy a really nice image file. Fuji 160S again. Really liking the blue here and the generous depth in color and luminance.

You can buy anti-newton spray that may help. I think oil mounting helps though it is messy as hell. My scanner (Screen Cezanne Elite) has anti-newton coating which is the best solution ($20k prepress scanner).

The Contax gear occasionally pops up for sale at www.apug.org (external link) - not too long ago there was a G2 setup with 3 or 4 lenses that sold for a very fair price... I too am lusting over one of these :)

Man, I'd kill to have such a nice scanner. I think I can confidently say that if I had a drum scanner or anything of near-equal quality I'd switch over to film-only. I love working with it, but the sharpness just isn't there on anything but the 4x5 negs.
