i, like many fellow Argus C3 owner, would like to use the camera more.
in a certain way C3's design is in the same league with Voigtlander Vitessa (barn-door model)--they both just simply broken all the rules regarding camera operation.
fondling the camera itself is enough fun
but a camera is made to take photo.
i have been struggling with the focus issue for 2 years.
i am now have a better understanding (after reading the RFf posts
the (may be) only problem left is the focusing.
the focusing ring is stiff and bumpy from the closet distance to around 6 ft
that i have to turn the lens barrel to force-past that point, when it get from the 6ft point it is then smooth again to the infinity.
why is that?
