She's not very big and I'm thinking Minolta Autocord. Did I read someplace that the lenses on these are a 5 element heliar type?
Jim, both the Autocords and the Yashica 124s and Gs have Tessar type lenses - not Heliars. The Minolta Rokkors are great lenses - as are their Yashica counterparts. I have a couple of Autocords (love em - the focusing helixes on mine are still ok) and a gaggle of Yashica 44s and 4x4 Sawyers.Konical said:Good Evening, Jim,
I have an Autocord. Somehow I doubt that it has a five element lens, but it should, nevertheless, give fine performance. The only problem I have with mine is that the focusing mechanism froze up years ago; I've heard of other Autocords with the same problem.

Ha! And I can imagine the 'yeah right' look he would get. Ah how we junkies justify our addictions.rbarker said:I can hear you talking to your wife, now, Jim, "I'm just testing them for the daughter, dear."
