Yea, it took me a little while to get used to focusing. I'm used to the split prism on my Nikon F2. I was also kind of surprised at the little amount of "feedback" when pressing the shutter release. Its just a little click.
I ended up with this camera because I think it looks so awesome. I was eyeing a few FEDs and Zorkis with screw mounts, but ended up going with this one. Nice thing too is it has a built in selenium light meter (no batteries!) that as far as I can tell still works fine.
