Yashica Electro 35 GX   40/1.7 lens

I have never encountered this camera before.  Strangely enough, it is NOT in the Collector's Guide to Japanese Cameras. I am told it is the last of the long line of 16 Yashica Electro cameras, vintage 1975.

 

 

This is an interesting camera with electronic shutter, 40/1.7 6 element lens, aperture priority,  parallax correction, nice VF/RF, and convenient controls.

This is a very nice handling, not well known camera.  Appreciate it if you can find it.
