Some years ago i was dragged into the yashica range finder hype. The electro 35 was only and by a small margin rivalled by Leica. Diffrent websites all sang praise of the yashica's and prices on Ebay and such went through the roof. Even though the electro's battery problem wich was a major let down, has diffrent easy solutions now, the hype's over resulting in downward spiralling prices.
The situation's so bad we're talking about scrap metal prices, despite a lot of these cameras turning up for sale at a fraction of the price they use to fetch, non of them seems to get sold. Because of me lacking the space to keep on piling up cameras wich don't fit in my main collection they'll have to go on the next garage sale next summer. My loss will be somewhat compensated with the yashica TLR's of wich prices keep rising (maybe another hype?) This is the current situation in Belgium, wich is a small market, maybe in other parts of the world things might be better? PS. this is the first time i use the add image to post function, is the pic visible for every one?
