I don't particularly mind that the shutter requires a very long travel and takes quite a bit of pressure to release - possibly exacerbating camera shake, as much as I just want to know that is by design as opposed to my having a poor sample. I just happened to notice this while exercising all the shutter speeds manually to make sure they are all accurate and this was obvious compared to a Minolta XD-11 and SR-1 that I was also testing. From what I have read, the Auto-Reflex is known for this and subsequent models have smoother shutters shorter throw. Interestingly enough, the 1968 Autoreflex T is my oldest camera with mirror lock-up function with self timer which should help the camera shake concern.
BTW, externally the Autoreflex T & T2 are both labeled Autoreflex T and you will have to confirm the differences between the two at Konica Autoreflex T / T2 Differences
