I have added some more photos taken with my Ambi Silette on my photoblog. The second set includes pictures taken with my 'new' 35mm and 90mm lens. These with the camera form quite a light, quiet and compact kit. (i got a second body with the lens but the range finder is defunct).

Of all the older rangefinders (Zorki, Feds, Kiev, LTM Leicas) i have used, this camera is the easiest to use. It is very quiet, The bayonet lens mount is superb and it is very quiet. The only downside is the maximum apertures of the lens.

PS I add picture to the blog every day at http://jfbell20.fotopages.com but they are not necessarily taken with a rangefinder.
