Build quality

All metal body and it have a really good quality.

Conclusion

Its easy to use have good image quality.
You focus by pulling a big level underneath the lens that works great. This makes it quick and easy to focus and is allot better then many other similar cameras.

But in short this is a great camera!

Thumbs up:
Easy to use.
Good image quality.

Thumbs down:
Glow effect wide open
When you crank to the next frame you also crank up the shutter automaticly and I´m not a big fan of that.
Its not a big problem and I only crank to next frame before I´m going to take a new image.
