Actually, the Konica C35 is not an SLR camera at all, but rather a 35mm rangefinder or zone focus series of cameras. Metal bodies, fairly well made. Early model C35s were manual focus only, and used mercury batteries which are no longer produced.

One of the last models offered was the C35-MF which I owned, which ironically is an autofocus model, using modern AA alkaline batteries, but the same well-made lens.

The lenses on all the C-35s are very sharp, and could produce excellent photos. However, a big negative proved to be the autofocus on my C35MF - it was very primitive, and frequently cost me good pictures no matter how I attempted to compensate with the focus lock. Build quality is excellent (how many 1978 compact 35mm cameras do you see still in perfect working order).
