|So I've got this $10 1959 Yashica 35mm YK rangefinder . . .
Where do I start.
The focus ring is stiff to move - do I have options other than disassembly.
Now when I look through the viewfinder I don't see the effect from the rangefinder window - is it hard to see or does it relate to the focus ring?
Any other thing I should be lookin at/for - this is my first rangefinder
