Yashica Lynx 14E

Fixcinater's Highlights:

Superfast (for a fixed lens RF) 45mm f/1.4. That's a lot of glass and this was the late 60s so it's not a compact camera.

Full manual mode, battery only powers the meter.

Yashica build quality, that is to say: fine but won't win any awards for being particularly refined or smooth.

Awkward but lovable styling.

All exposure controls set by rings on the lens barrel
