Solid chunk of metal!

Could it just be the sum of all these things that makes my analogue heart pound whenever I see a beautiful creature like this one?!?

What is it, that makes me love my Yashica Lynx-14 so?

-Is it the feeling of an almost solid chunk of metal in my hands?
-Is it the looks of the huge and incredibly fast (at least for a rangefinder with non-changeable lens like this) lens at 1:1,4?
-Is it the amazing results delivered by the Yashinon-DX 1:1,4
- Is it the shutter speeds that goes from 1 – /1/500 sec.?
- Is it because that the ISO can be adjusted?
-Is it the classic stylish looks that some tasteful camera designer gave this massive beauty back in the sixties?
-Could it be the reliable CdS meter which still works as good as the day it was released on the market?
Or, could it just be the sum of all these things together that makes my analogue heart pound whenever I see a beautiful creature like this one?!?

I was looking for a decent rangefinder because I wanted to take some concert photos without disturbing anyone with the noise of my SLR’s mirror and something a bit more handy than my TLR.
And so I found this beauty with it’s very fast lens, at a very reasonable price, which made it even more suiting for my needs! After running the first roll af Tri-x through it, under a variety of different light-conditions, I now feel ready to go shoot some musicians!

Even with the little experience I’ve had with this camera, I have absolutely no worries recommending it to anyone who would get the opportunity of purchasing one…
