Oh yes I am going to use it as much as possible, I love shooting film and using the classic Contax cameras.
The reason I go to the trouble to have Henry Scherer-ized Contax cameras is because being a mechanic myself I know how machinery can hurt itself in use if it is not clean and lubricated, and we all know Sherer's cameras have the least probabliity of hurting themselves in use as is possible.
Because I love machinery I will not abuse it for personal gain, I would feel bad about myself using a work of art like a Contax that is grinding itself to pieces and just running because I squirted lighter fluid in it.......
Also the light-meter is very responsive, I will have to test it and see how it compares to my Nikon f2 etc. and I am sure I could use it once I know what asa number to use with it. I used an old Weston meter earlier this year I just had to set it to a slower film speed than I was using to get correct metering. No problem........
