XJ-65 dash 2

XJ-65-1-3

This is stopped down to f/5.6, and shot quite a bit slower.

Unfortunately (as you can see) there is a problem with the shutter.

(That dark line is the second curtain closing prematurely at slower speeds).

Therefore this beauty is off to Mr. Fleenor for an extensive CLA and rebuild.

When it comes back, however, it will be SO worth it.

Not since the Pentax 6×7 have I been this excited about a MF body.

        Haha, Mrs. J tells me that all the time! If you had said top secret project K7S I’d know I was right. Any who, no matter – I’m just going to enjoy the images.

          And I’m more of an old fashioned kind of guy, but if you force me I will take a Manhattan šŸ™‚

          One day we’ll have to have both!!

          In any case, hardly any of Mr. Fleenor’s wares have a vertically travelling focal-plane shutter. That should narrow it down substantially…
