Olympus 35RC

What do we do when the light is sh1t and thoughts turn to photography? We turn to eBay and look at all those lovely 'new' (ish) cameras and glazing accessories, don't we.

Doing just that I came across the Olympus 35RC, and seeing a nice example temptation nearly had the better of me. But my rational left hand brain said: 'hang-on', do your research first before diving in'.

The RF base seems to be really close so I'd imagine the focusing works best at mid apertures (around f8) becoming more challenging wide open. (I like limited DoF.)

This being the temple of Olympus goodness, has anyone used the 35RC who can advise on the rangefinder performance?
