Great viewfinder, it's big and bright.
You see which shutter speed is selected and light meter pin.

Build quality:

Very solid and well built.
Don't like the end part of the film advance lever which feel cheap and not as solid as the rest of the camera.


Uses M42 screw mount.
You can find hole range of old nice lenses for this.

One of the best light meters I have found on a camera from the 70s.
It's very responsive and accurate even in low light.

Also good size, well build quality.
Don't like the little plastic endpart on the film advance lever.
The mirror makes noticeable vibrations and I would like to have seen a mirror lock.

Thumbs up:
Light meter is very good and responsive
All mechanical shutter
Build quality
Good view finder

Thumbs down:
Mirror vibrations and no mirror lock
