    I believe that the YashicaMat uses the Yashinon lens (which IIRC is the 4-element/3 group lens a bit higher quality than the Yashikor lens, which is 3 element/3 group that most of the 635s come with). My 635 has quite a bit of swirl.

    Value of the 635?

    I'll scan a few of my negs tomorrow morning so we can have a look.

    On my 635 I have cut a little bit of plastic out of a film can that slips in tight against the m-x lever and locks it in the x position to stop inadvertent use. The flexibility of the plastic is enough to tweak it into position and robust enough to keep it in place.

    This is only an issue if you try to use the self timer in M mode correct? Otherwise you shouldn't need to worry?

    I don't foresee myself ever using the self timer though.

    Christopher:

    I expect this is essentially the same problem that people deal with on the Mamiya TLR lenses.

    It is easy to accidentally bump the selector to M, even if you only shoot (X-synch) electronic flash.

    And you will never notice that you have done so, until after you get back your rolls of film without any of the expected flash exposures.

    Particularly disastrous if you shoot weddings.

    So it is really handy to be able to ensure that that lever stays on "X".
