I have a Konica Auto S2 which can be used for parts -- it's in very good condition except for a crack in the viewfinder glass -- or for repair -- the rangefinder is not working. The aperture, shutter, and lens movement are fine. It's yours for the cost of shipping.

I decided to keep this as a 'beater'. I was wrong, the rangefinder does work. I adjusted the vertical and horizontal alignment, and cleaned the viewfinder. The meter responds but is off by two stops. But then I don't use the meter on my 'good' S2 as it is not consistent either. The only thing left is to replace the foam at the rear door hinge. I might as well keep it since I like the heft and the fast lens. A recent roll with my other S2 was very much to my liking. Too bad that 3 out of 4 of these cameras seem to have a cracked front viewfinder glass.
