1.1 Acknowledgements

The only thing I knew about Yashica was that I own two bodies and a handful of lenses. So this FAQ couldn't have been written with the help of a number of net.users out there (even when my writing style made it look like I know it all - don't let that fool you!). My thanks go especially to Gary Schloss for a lot of information especially on bodies, and to Marcus Hanke, who single-handedly put together the lens overview and the FX series stuff. Ezekiel Tan, Berry de Bruijn and Oliver Schmid also provided me with very useful information. David Foy gave me the details on the Pentamatic, the first Yashica SLR (he's looking for lenses and accessories).

If I forgot someone please yell.
