Yashica replaced the selenium meter of the Yashica Lynx 1000 with a CdS cell when it introduced the Lynx 14 and Lynx 5000 in 1965.The standout feature of the Lynx 14 was a massive Yashinon 45mm F/1.4 lens, with a 58mm filter thread. The Lynx 14E is physically similar, but with a small revision to the meter circuit, which adds an over/under display in the viewfinder, rather than the top-deck meter readout of the earlier model. The front panel noted this as "IC" (for integrated circuit) which was a first in this model. The top speed of the leaf shutter is 1/500.
