    Has anyone taken one of these apart? It is a really nice looking sub-format camera so I couldn't resist getting it. The shutter is slow overall and really slow on 1/30th. It needs a CLA.
    Looks like the lens come off with four screws inside the back. Top cover looks like two screws plus meter wires.
    Any help would be appreciated.:confused:

    W-I-P!!!

    Suprised no one has done one of these. I am back from vacation so I will be getting the WIP out soon: that's Work-In-Progress. Before I left I removed the lens/shutter combo and stripped the body. Looks like we will be working front to back on the lens/shutter group.
