Viewfinder:

Good size and brightness.

Info:

Build quality:

Very solid and well built.
It also have a nice feel to it.



Lenses:

You can find hole range of old nice lenses for this.


Conclusion:

Really nice camera with good viewfinder, build quality and light meter.
The light meter work very well but I would like to have a middle LED.
It works but just showing either a led for over or under exposed and you have the right exposure just when it switches.
But thats something one can easly get used to so its not a problem.


Thumbs up:
Light meter is very good and responsive
All mechanical shutter
Build quality
Reliable
Good view finder

Thumbs down:
Noisy

No mirror lock
