Anyone know the Ricoh AD-1?

    Hi guys,

    I'm thinking of getting an inexpensive rangefinder, and wanted a focal
    length of no more than 35mm or so. On my list are the Olympus XA
    (most likely candidate), Yashica Electro CC (probably too expensive or
    too hard to find) and I've just come across a Ricoh AD-1. Don't know
    anything about them, though. Any experiences?

    The AD-1 (c. 1980) was the last of Ricoh's springwound full-frame 35's.

    It is a zone focus model with a program shutter,dateback
    and Ricoh's standard 40mm f/2.8 multicoated lens.

    Ricoh offered a fitted case for underwater photography with the AD-1.

    Excelsior, you fatheads!
