I bought this one little over a year ago at an – almost – local thrift shop. I since bought and sold an extra one that I found at another shop. I use both cameras, so this post is sort of double stroll – or test if you like – and I can say that both cameras performed a like and very well.
I'm really amazed by the sharpness of the lens on this camera. And the rangefinder is spot on as well, a real joy to use. I can only recommend buy one of these if you ever come across one, and normally you can find them at a reasonable price.
One of the few downsides of this camera, is that it uses an obsolete battery for the lightmeter, but an “upside” is that the camera can be used full manually without a battery. I just use a PX625 battery and then just dial the ISO down a notch (ISO 200 = 160) that normally does the trick, I know it's not spot on, but close enough for me.
