my FIRST camera!!!!!!!!
belonged to my dad
was ruined by a girl at a party who took a pic with it and then closed it without putting the lens back to infinity
NEVER worked right again
BUT it turned me on to other cameras
VERY sharp lens
still like the girl too, even after THAT. man, that was like 25 years ago...
Well do you still have the camera? Wanna sell it? lol.
I don't have my Retinas nearby, but as I recall, the IIc/IIIc (small c) have better contrast than the IIa. Keep in mind that most Retinas will need to be cleaned and serviced, which includes the viewfinder components.
The Big C models - IB, IIC and IIIC - all have the best viewfinders and include framelines for the auxiliary lens (not the IB, which has a fixed Xenar).
If you're looking for a better viewfinder, look at one of the Big C models.
Sorry about the deleted posts below. I was trying to make some edits while using a tablet device.
