(1965) It basically the same as the original Yashica Mimi, and uses the same body, but there are noticeable differences. Most important, is that the 28mm (f2.8) lens is now a focusing lens -- like with the 72-E. The selenium cell -- which surrounds the lens, as in the original Mimy -- still sets both the correct shutter speed and aperture automatically. The other difference is that things are moved around on the top of the camera. The "Mimy" name is no longer on the front, but has been moved to the top. The exposure windows has also found a new place, as has the cold flash shoe and a PC contact. Apertures can be set manually for flash use, or low light situations.
