If you take the back off the camera and slowly wind the shutter, you will see the opening curtain capping increases as the shutter is wound.
That's the way the Zorki 4 curtains work also, right? I can see the capping increase as I wind it. Why is it more of a problem for Leica III-inspired Russian RFs than actual Leica IIIs? Just better workmanship?
