Noone seems to want to repair it. But at least in terms of experience, the Rollei 35 SE is a nice replacement. Neither as small and light as the Minox nor as fast to shoot, but nice nonetheless. But I concur - the Minox 35 line was very well conceived indeed, and if you get a working example, it's fun and rewarding at the same time.Any news on the 35 GT-E? I just developed a roll of HP5+ taken with a 35 EL that I got off the ol' auction site in nearly new condition, came with leather half case, flash in leather case, and original box with a picture of the camera next to a pack of cigarettes(!). Every frame looks to have been perfectly exposed. I know some of these cameras have trouble with the electronically driven shutter not always working, but I seem to have gotten a good one, hopefully it keeps up. They are really cool little cameras!
