I put some Ilford XP2 through this yesterday. I used a DX 35/2.8 instead of the DS-M 50/1.7 that came with the camera. I'm fortunate that the camera is in such good shape... I suppose there's a silver lining to the financial turmoil, you can buy a good $9 camera...

Clearly it needs re-sealing


Look at the corners, this Yashinon 35 has the strangest corner focus... either the DOF in the corner is incredible or the focus 'plane' is U shaped.

It looks like the film plane was not square. Love the atmosphere
