Benji I haven't used mine for 62 two because I am not as old as that. Regarding the small viewfinder an accessory viewfinder helps a lot. I love my Albada finders. I also agree the F1 is a superb camera but from 2014 perspective it is severely outdated just like a Contax or any other fully manual camera. It's also important to note that neither the Leica nor the Contax were in widespread use before the war. Pros mostly used bigger tools and they had much bigger viewfinders if they used one that is. The Westlich auction sells all kind of cameras from collector items to user. Some are of course purely fetish and not really usable at all for modern photography. The Leicashop/Westlich Auction nr1. customers come from China and Japan and they buy them as fetish unfortunately some even end up in museums.
