GT-E II - Minox 35mm

introduction | accessories | Minox EL | Minox PL | Minox ML | Minox AF | Minox CD | Minox DC | Compared

The last model the Minox 35 range, similar the 35 GT-E but with improvements in constructions.

Grasp burls, front and back and soft touch lacquer. The Makrolon core of the camera is provided with a soft rubber coat making it feels like a pencil eraser. It is warm to touch and with the grip burls front and back gets makes for a comfortable firm hold.  The colour is a graphite grey. The first models with this coat apparently came to difficulties with the adhesion; the coating peeled. This problem, however, seems to be solved.

The camera was also sold as a set with the matching FC-E flash unit, shown here. Production ceased before October 2003, but some are still found in the shops with an asking price of 448EUR and 498EUR for the set.

At the end of the first film used in the new from Minox camera with both camera and flash always carried and stored in their cases the wear is very apparent. The flash in fact has not been used, but the batteries where taken out between trips. The wear is therefore from taking out of it's case.
