The GAF Memo 35ET was a compact 35mm rangefinder dating from 1976. With a design based on the classic Konica C35 and Minolta Hi-Matic series, it may well have been built for GAF by Cosina, like very similar models such as the Vivitar 35EE and Prinz-E from Dixons. It is also a close relative of the Chinon 35EE.
