f/2.8 - f/4 - f/5.6 - f/8 - f/11 - f/16 - f/22
Built like a tank and you'll be more worried for the floor if you drop it.
Extreamly solid, great viewfinder and a good lens.
One can't ask for much more.
My copy have clearly received quite a lot of abuse through the years but it still works.
The light meter on this diden't work unfortunately so I can't comment on it but these old selenium meter are usually not that accurate.
The built in rangefinder ghost image is not that clear and it can be hard to see sometimes.
Quite heavy for it's size.
The rangefinders ghost image can be hard to see sometimes.
Want to help me out?
