    Checking Focus for Film SLRs

    Update: bent it back 90 degrees. Now it is not as easy to continuously advance. Of course with enough force it will still happen, but I'm happy with it as is. Next up, actually fixing what's in the title of this thread :P

    Checking Focus for Film SLRs

    Hmm seems you are right. Today I managed to remove a part of the mechanism on the (chrome) second FE. It's not shown in the service manual though, but on this forum here it is suggested that it is this part that is causing it to advance continuously. The thread lock was really strong on the...

    Checking Focus for Film SLRs

    I'm happy to report that despite the non-locking film advance mechanism and a slightly hazy viewfinder, the second FE performs flawlessly! I guess all there is left for me to do is to figure out why it can't lock before I disassemble the top plate to figure out how to adjust viewfinder focus.

    Is it just me or does the pricetag say $399.00?

    Checking Focus for Film SLRs

    I haven't gone out to shoot with my second FE yet but I will next week. However, I did realise recently that the second FE has this problem where the film advance lever doesn't stop winding forward once the shutter is cocked. I took it apart and was surprised to find that my original FE looks...

    Similar to Sigma 30mm f1.4 for Sony Alpha

    30mm on the APSC a6000 works out to around 45mm equivalent field of view on a full frame camera like the a7. I'm not familiar with Sony lenses so I won't be recommending any of Sony's offerings, but I do think you can take a look at the Sigma 50mm f1.4 ART lens if you want something with a...

    Checking Focus for Film SLRs

    Minor update: I've been studying the repair manual for the past few days. I can't just shim the focusing screen because the issue is front focusing so I'll have to open the camera up. Seems like it's going to take some elbow grease to get to the bracket that's holding up the screen. In the...
