In production from 1973 to 1977 The Konica Auto S3 seems to have a strong following today. It is a shutter priority rangefinder. There is no option for manual operation of the aperture, not a big deal to me, but an issue for some. The Hexagon 38mm f1.8 lens gets lots of praise for it images. Even more praise for how well it does with a flash.
The size and weight is outstanding, smaller than the Canonet and noticeably lighter. But it still has a quality fell and looks fantastic. Mine does not show much ware so the black finish looks nice. I generally prefer a black camera and this one looks great. Fun and easy to use. Mine has a distinct gear sound to the film advance, really reminds you that you are shooting film.
This may be the winner of the compact rangefinder class for me. If not it is in the running. I shot the whole roll on a walk in a bamboo forest so way too much green. I did have trouble with getting the focus right. That may be an issue with my camera needing an adjustment or more likely operator error.
