I really liked this , unfortunately I only got to shoot one roll of film with it, before it broke. The winder is stuck, I'm still considering getting it fixed, or try to fix it myself, because the camera is otherwise in a really nice condition.
Even though, mine is broken I think the build quality is pretty good, it has a nice size and weight.

And while on other rangefinders I sometimes find it hard to hit focus, it was pretty easy on this A5. So, a thumbs up for the view- and combo on this camera.

But – as always – take a look at the photo gallery below and judge for yourself. The film I used was a 10 year expired Fujicolor Super HQ, . Some were converted to in post.
