Great little camera with a fantastic lens. Found one in vgc for £25 GBP ($38 USD). Need to use it more though.

If I can find it, buy it and lift it, I'll shoot it

I love my 35 RC, it definetly got me into street photography. It is much smaller and lighter than an Canonet QL17 (which I also own). You can easily shoot one handed all day without getting tired. Make sure you tighten the shutter speed dial if it feels loose. (the 2 hole screw turns counterclockwise, 2 pointy screwdrivers will do the job).
Those were shot on HP5 at 800 ISO.

I've been interested for a while. Anyone has insight on the build quality? Small it is, does it wobble like contemporary compact rangefinders usually do? Thanks.

Great shots...I just gave my 35 RC to my buddy who is getting into film photography, but I got some great shots from it!

I loved my QL17 too, maybe a bit more than the RC...not sure, that's a dead heat.

A very good camera. Its on the small side, but still solid and heavy enough to let you know its in your coat pocket. Great lens and good metering system. I seem to get my best color results with ISO 100 C-41 films.
