This is a work horse that is built like a tank.
The vertical metal shutter are very reliable and next to all of them work as good today as when thay were new.

Don't have any mirror lock but the mirror goes up when you use the selftimer which is the next best thing.

Nice little plus it that you have the option of double exposure.
