    qaa5.jpg IMG_9636.jpg Just got this on eBay (God, just love eBay, where would we be without it). Decided to buy the best I find, not the cheapest that I used to look for.Paid US$800..First roll looks really good, well exposed and sharp. Haven't got any imprinted data though, will have to work it out.Attaching the first frame. A bit uninteresting but had to start somewhere.

    Cheers, Wojtek. View attachment 73501

    Nice! I've never owned one of the Fuji MF rangefinders but they are absolutely stunning workhorses. Congrats!

    All of these threads popping up about modern Fujis is giving me a bad case of GAS. I'm left asking myself which among them I'm going to procure.

    If have exacely the same, which costed me 550€ on ebay with 1 year warranty. It had only 600 images taken so far. Great travel camera, the batteries last forever. Very sharp lens, especially in the wide range.

    You can have assigned f/stop, exposure time and date at the edge of the negative! Great.

    I had the 65mm version and its focus was really spotty. Returned it for a Bronica RF645, which is a bit bigger but its rangefinder is amazing.

    I have a GA645 and it focuses quite fine. Yours must have had some sort of problem.
