Shot a roll today - hope all goes well with it.Had fun and enjoyed shooting with it VERY much.(Almost,and maybe MORE than my Bronica "S")!.Pic to follow.Also,I made a day of it(I'm about broke),so I shot a roll with my Sears(Ricoh) w all my screw mount lenses.(On the same outting/trip out)Both are getting developed.So - I'm hoping for no light leaks,no overlapping,correct exposures...I already know my HH meter is good.This Kowa super 66 was a big surprize.And that eye-level finfer is kool-but not so sharp to use.Still like it.Got my eye on a 55mm,and 150mm ...comes with a Kowa SIX and crome 85mm,both,that I can sell off-or keep.Also I'm advertizing for a 40mm,or a 35mm wide for 66.More news;Bought a Sigma 24mm 2.8 and a Kiron 70-210 f4.0 for my Contax 139q(I have an awesome Soligor 35-70mm w it).Kowa Super 66 is WAY TOO MUCH FUN ! - Don't buy one...ya'll get hooked bad.
