WOW,Clean AND CLA'd...on the way.Not cheap-but all renovated,including the uneven focus plain "Tessar disease".

It seemed to me to pay a little more,and get more!!,I was plnning on getting a Zenobia,clean too-I bet would have served my purpose...but...the reviews on these Tessars;the 105mm 3.5...thought I'm getting the 75mm 3.5

And I have my Vanguard(fantastic)(223?)tripod - for slow film;200 or under...but I'm thinking of trying B+W ASA 400.
I like contrasty , any reccommendations...?I like Illford 125 ASA,but perfer 400 for hand holding - which I plan to do 75% of the time(3 rolls 400 to one roll 125ASA)

And I plan to use my classic Seconic Auto Leader 38 lightmeter(has hi,med,and low light settings!).

Anyone have a similar type camera they want to comment on?

Oh- and if this is OK see it here-I won it ;


Very happy day ! / Larry
