This camera was my first ever rangefinder. I sold it but it remains one of my favorites.

Here's one.. I just got a new one because my old one was totally beaten up, I had been inside of it fixing the aperture with a bit of metal-thread (not knowing ANYTHING about the mechanics of the camera), the lens was heavily scratched and so on.. But the little bugger was sharp and worked flawlessly, this shot was from the last roll I shot with it.. Sometimes I imagine that the old half broken RC is sharper than my new mint condition one..???

I picked one up for a bit of fun. Not sure it's on at infinity, is it user adjustable if it isn't?

Now I see the thread a bit further down on that topic, I'll investigate there.

Definitely a sharp enough lens for purpose but I did make the mistake of scanning my first roll alongside some Leica APO shots and the difference is as stark as you might expect.

I do love the tiny focus throw range and the meter is spot on. I threw a step up ring and third party hood on it's still a tiny setup perfect for take it everywhere stuff. Cool camera!

Wish they still made cameras like this, Olympus XA was my experience of 35mm film when I was younger and only into a point and shoot experience.
