A neighbor down the street dropped off a Ricoh 500, dated Jan 1970, at by brothers garage sale. I of course picked it right up and am considering buying it but wonder if it is worth adding another 35mm camera if the optics are run of the mill. Lens is a 45mm F2.8. Bottom trigger wind, not great viewfinder but RF patch is pretty good for focusing and the camera is in very nice shape and speeds sound good. Also dropped off was a Petri 7 with working meter. I guess these were CDS meters. Nice frame outline in the viewfinder and clean. Maybe someone can relate their experiences with either, thanks.
