    The Seagull may be shite, but that said it'd be a pretty ropy MF camera that couldn't outdo 35mm.

    Well said Will - I have just adopted another Yashica 124G, really nice cameras.
    I am looking for the 35mm kit for my Yashy 635 if there's a spare one out there?

    Agree again Will, couldn't wait to get rid of mine. It was very stiff, poorly finished and not very sharp. You can get a really good 2nd hand Yashica for the same money.

    Benchista Which Tyler

    Yup. That's the point. Personally, I would rather have an older, but more solid camera that will last longer, feel nicer and have a better lens that the 'Gull, and won't crap all over your head.

    My Xenotar is a Type 3, the Planar a Type 3/4. Or they're both Model 3s. Or the one's a model 3, the other's a Model 4. According to who you believe! The only difference (apart from the lens, and the meter, of course!) is the plate below the strap lugs.

    I think it would be a fair assumption to say that. Seagulls are like the three legged camel...........fuc**n' useless!

    The Seagull may be shite but its a lot better than a lubitel!
    BTW, i recently spotted a guy with a Lubitel in town, as well as another old russian brick!
