I can see them now! Too bad about the battery issue, but that's fairly common with any Yashica of that era that you find. It wouldn't be so bad if they weren't battery dependent.



The 72-E was an earlier model with selenium metering that sometimes you can find one still in operating condition. Mine overexposed quite a bit, which could also be indicative of a slow shutter, but I think maybe it would do better with b&w film.
