My hero, you are, Attila. That's an awesome camera.

(And you'll see one, I believe, in The Maltese Falcon, hidden in a post...)

Wide open is useable but bokeh is typically tessarish wild. When you stop it down already at f/4 and f/5.6 you have results good for large prints. I have three of this camera, I really really like it.

Some photos taken with them

Test shots from f/2.8 to f/11 (where detail peaks)

You will love it. The only mechanical weak point is the film double exposure lock mechanism. It is very common for the gearing to break so that after the 6th or 8th exposure you have to trigger the shutter from the front lever, as the double exposure preventure mechanism gearing has worn out.

You have a great memory, Bill !
In fact, my dad's camera is a 533/16 model.
Superb piece of craftsmanship and precision.

Yes, you most certainly got a very high class one, the 80/2.8 Opton-Tessar is a great performer and the mechanics of that camera are very good. With a little aid I can get sharp frames at 1/25s (although not every frame), but at 1/50s and especially 1/100s this is easily a hand-held camera.

Sounds prewar definitely. Body serial on this model starts with a letter and then numbers, imprinted on the back in the leatherette. Lens has separate serial, and if yours has lens serial 22xxx... then it is from 1938

I've got mine now. Everything is clean and clear and working well except the rangefinder is way off. Maybe the glass in the small arm can be rotated to correct it, has anyone tried this?

This seems to be the answer but if the screws are the ones I think he means they are so minute I can hardly even see them
