Since the beginning of my relationship with photographic gear in 1979 I lost lots of equipment.
Some cameras died, some were sold, some I gave away as gifts. Luckily the photos survived.
The Minox 35 PL has all the advantages and disadvantages of the Minox 35 series, but features a program AE; that means, you have no clue what aperture the camera choose and if you can use a certain DOF. The camera I owned had a extremely sensible shutter. Everytime the camera touched something a little bit harder it needed a service. So I sold it.
