The Pancolar is supposed to be a fantastic lens. Though I haven't got or used one, not being a 50mm fan....

Anyway, a loose Exakta camera mount can be tightened if necessary by (very carefully) using a small screwdriver to slighly expand the mount flange (easier seen in reality than trying to describe it....)
