First impression: Wow, what a beauty! Reeks of quality and built like a tank. Got to love that instant-return mirror. Feels great and doesn't sound objectionally loud. Has the heft of real metal, in spades (and stainless steel). I'm going to like this camera. First roll of film is at frame #8. I took some pictures on the way home from the individual I bought it from. I used f11 and f16 so I won't be able to tell about viewing screen registration, although it does not seem to get to infinity focus. I'll do the foam replace this week. I've got a ton of reading to do on the Yahoo Bronica users group site. I'm also looking forward to adapting some LF lenses (in barrel) to the focusing helix. I've got a Nikkor 300mm and an Apo Ronar 240mm that would be interesting to use (not to mention good for close-ups.) Yee-haw!
