Sorry to bring back an old thread, but since I've had this board up there hasn't been much discussion on Chinon family cameras. This GAF L-17 is a wonderfull camera with a Copal Shutter, double exposure ability and a battery check button. Anyone else use one of these?

Hi Randy, Nope, no L-17 but I do have my cherished GAF L-CS, Chinon CS (x2), and Miranda badged Chinon CE-5, Albinar MS-2 badged Chinon CM5, and my latest Revueflex badged Chinon CE-5. Do These count? P.S. the Miranda, Albinar and Revueflex all use the ever popular K mount.
They are like a Spotmatic, but they do have DOF Preview and a battery check light. The L-17 also has a double exposure button right by the shutter release. Best feature is the metal Copal Shutter. Here's some shots of my L-CS...
