One of the sharpest 35mm RF what I did try , sharper than any of my existing Yashica Electro and sharper than Konica Auto S3 , it was a great surprise.

Foma R09 (Rodinal) 1:50 Agfa Apx 100 12'30" 25C.

Hi-res images are here

Sharp results indeed. I was given an Electro GSN with Yashica Guy's
battery adapter and need to take it out for another go:

Has a 1.7/45 lens, same as GN?

Not sure, they made at difference places , HK and Japan and possible with different lenses too. 1,7/45 all but I am unsure about lens suplier.

Mine has everything yours has around the front glass. Were the lenses
made by different Japanese manufacturers?

No matter if 95% sharp or 98%, the Electro 35 series are wonderful cams! Wink

Normals yashica are tomioka made, or I'm wrong?

Please, don't say to me that the normals of the Electro 35 are in the Unknown dimension too.

Nice results but great capture on the last but one image (even if that guy hasn't got the pose quite right)!

I absolutely adore these old Yashica rangefinders. They feel great in the hand and take wonderful photographs. Here is a small sampling from my GSN model.

on Fuji Color 200








on Ultramax 400





Attila, wonderful photos btw. Your landscapes are gorgeous.

These are all great examples from one of my favorite FL cameras!
I still use mine all the time.
Attila you should change the model in the title. The one you are showing is a GTN rather than GN Wink

Embarassed I can't do that it will cause broken link in search engines.

Superb sample shots Attila. None of your photos look bad anyway since you live in such beautiful city with wonderful sunny weather...

I have just dug out some old scans of Fuji Superia 200 roll from Yashica Electro 35 GTN - exactly the same model as shown at the first Attila's photo. Although it is my favorite film camera, it sits on the shelf almost unused for several years...

These two are from a "windows" series - before I realized that I am more an engineer than an artist Wink
Unfortunately the scans from lab are only so-so, the prints were better.

#1 - the old history (also notice the pentagonal bokeh patterns)


#2 - the modern history
