Viewfinder:

Good brightness and size.
The waist level finder works good and its east to get a full view of the entire frame.
But the viewfinder don't get bigger then the negative and I find 24×36 mm is a bit small.
That might be why we often se this type of viewfinder om a medium format camera but not your standard SLR.

Mine don't have any focus aid at all and it is a little hard to set the focus at some occasions.
It's not unusual that you could buy the camera with different focus prism so I guess this can vary.



Build quality:

Really good and built like a tank.


Conclusion:

One of the best looking camera I have owed.
The design is really nice and it looks like a modern camera with a retro style.
Build quality is really nice and every thing feel very solid and robust.
And this is a camera that will probably last another 40 years without any problems.

The things I don't like about it would be the lack of mirror lock and self timer.
Shutter button cannot be used with a standard remote cord and need some special screw mount that I would guess is hard to find and quite expensive.
