The J-7 was introduced by Yashica circa 1966, a continuation of the M42-lensed SLR series begun with the Penta J. Like the Yashica J-3 and its successors, the J-7 has a CdS meter cell mounted below the rewind crank, the final Yashica SLR to use this design. The TL-Super introduced the following year offered TTL (through the lens) light metering instead.
