Just acquired the Pearl III. U.S. $190 I have not yet put film through it but so far I am not terribly impressed: 1. The shutter/lense is not quiet parallel to the plane of the film. Is this a significant issue? 2. The shutter/lense is a tad loose. Not really a problem but it just makes the camera feel cheap. 3. The rangefinder is not reporting the correct distance. Anybody know how this is adjusted? I removed the plate the contains the film type dial but it only exposes a screw for the vertical alignment of the rangefinder mirror. The good: very little wear, very clean lense, all shutter speeds are accurate to the ear, no leaks in the bellows, it has a PC synch and it fires a flash. Did I pay too much? Feels like it.
