Build quality

Like most cameras from the 50s this is built like a rock.
All moving parts feel very solid.


Conclusion

I'm very pleased with this camera.
The lens is sharp and have great contrast.
One downside is that this don´t have any rangefinder so if you don´t have a external one you have to guess the range which can be quite hard.

Thumbs up:
Image quality
Small size
All mechanical parts have a nice feel and are very solid

Thumbs down:
Would like to see a rangefinder on it but this would make it bigger and heavier



Want to help me out?
