F/1.7 and f2.8 got over exposed so thay have more grain then the others.

Not that bad for a half frame in turmes of sharpness etc.

Vignetting is next to gone.

Build quality

Really good build quality and all parts feel very solid and sturdy.


I'm very pleased with this camera.
The lens is sharp and have great contrast.
One downside is that this don´t have any rangefinder so if you don´t have a external one you have to guess the range which can be quite hard.

Thumbs up:
Image quality
Fairly quiet shutter noise
All mechanical parts have a nice feel and are very solid
72 pictures on a 36 roll

Thumbs down:
No rangefinder
Shutter speed only down to 1/8 sec
