Customized(lens is preset in a rise position - so as to shoot level,horrizontal 6x9 shots->where buildings or trees would not be slanting in-ward.)
This set-up is a mouth-full.120 film,sports style finder...needs a CLA - shutter below 1/30th sticky...way slow to staying open.Lens is kinda loose in a couple directions...

Bought it from my friend Rich.Actually - I traded my 15mm f5.6 Ai(treasure)for it - being I think I would use this more.

Remember though - I can only use in the horrizontal(landscape) position...and level...

BUT-, talk of packing a punch...I had a 50mm on my Mamiya super 23...and it was equal to a 22mm - in 35mm terms...
so I'd say this is equal to a 21mm.

Glass looks killer...deadly black.(like some Nikon and Sigma glass)

I paid $732. for my 15mm.Rich will pay the first $50.00 of the CLA.

WOW - guys - tell me what ya know,or think.(He told me 2 months ago he'd sell it for $350.) , I was just about to put my 15 in ebay,starting at 4 or 450.
So I coulda been smarter - but I wanted it NOW.!!
from his books - seems this camera was worth 7-$900.

ooooooooo....! I'll take some pics of it and show it here!!!!!

Very VERY HAPPY DAY / Larry

Edit;

WOW - got some pics - NO scatches on glass,and on second pic...NOTE;

-> I SQUARED MYSELF TO THE RECTANGLE OPENING(FLAT -NOT ANGLED RIGHT,LEFT OR...) ;
so you can see exactly the rise/offset of the squared/not tilted lens.wow;hot tamalli !
