Operating + Sounds
Great size and brightness.
Exposure meter (match needle)
Vertical metal blade.
Very good and solid as a rock.
Look and feel:
Love the look and the feel have tank standard but in a good way.
Nice little tank that looks nice and have a quite nice feel.
Good viewfinder and very reliable.
But the light meter takes mercury cell battery.
The mirror makes quite a lot vibrations.
And the camera don't have any mirror lock but the mirror goes up first when you use the self-timer.
All mechanical and battary is is only for the light meter.
