Guys, what the hype? The 35 Electro Variants (Original, and later GT, GTN, like Original (silver) GS, GSN are the same, basically, with modest variation changes, the last iteration from electronics, IC vs diskreet semiconductors. A "professional" sticker doesn't make the 35 Electro Series better or worse. It is, what it is. I'ts exactly the same drama, craze with the Zeiss Icarex 35 Series SLR from the 60's, a few came into all black with "PRO" Model on the front - besides that, everything else was exactly the same, like the black-silver variants, just saying. Funny thing though, i remember, this kind of things have been discussed into other forums like >= 20 years ago... ;-) History repeats itself, no offense.
Yes, but i think these public posts only hype the asking price into the end. I've noticed that especially 2021, every Yashica & Contax Gear is more expensive, than say just 1-2 years ago. So one person would get lucky, all others not, and being nerved perhaps. I have my black GTN, but i must admit, because of it's size, i haven't shot it for ages. The thing was i wanted to talk about, that there are no special PRO model features, it was just a small batch of the Electro 35, which had literally that sticker.
And that was being discussed onto other forums like 2 decades ago, or more perhaps. Nothing bad meant.
