I have two chrome EEs and one black one. My lenses include Mirandas and Soligors in focal lengths of 28, 35, 50, 135, 200 and 80-200 with at least two of each of the prime lenses and one zoom. I agree that the finders are not very bright. My only complaint with this series is that while T mount adapters are available I don't think Vivitar, Soligor, Tamron or Sigma (YS) made adapters specifically for the EE mount with shutter priority automation.
