My brother had a Yashica that he got in the seventies in the Service. He really liked his but wasnít big on taking pictures and lost track of it years ago. Like you said, the older lenses can be a tad heavy, but there is nothing like using them with a classic camera. They just sound and feel right. The precision amazes me. This will be my first trip without mine; my eyes arenít what they once were and like you said, the point and shoots have the built-in flash.
Also am cutting down to free up a hand.
Only a couple more weeks to go,
