August 2010; it was still a time when beautiful cameras like this didn’t command as high a price as today, so I snatched this gorgeous rangefinder with beautiful bright f1.4 lens for grabs. Even though I preferred the SLR type of focusing, once I handled it, I just couldn’t let it pass – this one is so smooth in operation, a really beautiful piece of precise craftmanship.

Sadly, I didn’t record the film used and I cannot remember now. It was probably Ilford HP5 PLUS, but I’m not sure.
