I didn't have the best of luck with this camera. First off, the meter and therefor aperture priority mode doesn't work, which usually isn't a problem for me but I faced a few additional complications. First off, when I started taking pictures it was hard to focus because the viewfinder was so dark. Eventually I figured out auto-aperture only works in the non-functional aperture priority setting, which meant that the reason viewfinder was so dark was because the lens was already stopped down to 5.6 or 8 before triggering the shutter. Once I figured this out I'd open the aperture to a nice bright 1.4, which made focusing much easier. But then I of course forgot to close the aperture back down after focusing, which gave me a large number of overexposed shots. I also have a feeling that the shutter speeds are off much more than I thought which caused additional exposure errors. Oh well, that's how it goes sometimes. The camera is built well and the lens seems sharp enough, but I don't think I'll be using this one much in the future.
