Ok, the camera arrived today, in mint condition. I love this little camera! It feels very sturdy like the Leica M6 I used to own. I headed downtown and found replacement batteries. I figured since I'm in town I might as well run a 24exp test roll of XP2 through it. I got the rolls back and the camera really does perform for such a little rangefinder. I think it will make really nice 8x10 photographs. Next roll will be tri-x with rodinal. The camera meter is pretty good and I find the lens performs best in subdued light. I am uploading the photos to my personal gallery now
