Aires 35 Lens

Has anyone here used an Aires 35, Probably an IIIL or IIIC, how is the lens, especially wide open? If you have any examples feel free to post (actually feel more than free because they'd e greatly appreciated!).

Second how is the build quality? Decent? Its from the 50's so does it weigh a ton like everything from those years? Is it possible to uncouple the silly EV system thing so the shutter speed and aperture dials move freely but still click nicely into place?

How quiet is it? As quiet as most leaf shutter cameras? (silent)
Finally hows the focusing on thi thing? Small and squinty or decent?

Thanks in advance for you input. I haven't been able to find much about this thing, but it seems like an interesting camera.
