the body consisted of one cast piece, the cover of the rangefinder was no longer a separate piece.
The mechanism was improved.
The camera is 3 mm longer than the previous models.

  • Camera was very nice, but unfortunately not properly functioning. The seller handled this very professional by agreeing with a partial refund.
