    Autofocus works very simple: you send your servant behind the camera under the dark cloth, where he will use the focussing loupe on the screen and set it all for you. A well trained servant only needs a minute or two until it is set properly and you can push the wire release.

    Unfortunately, this autofocus is optional and very expensive, I was not able to afford it ...

    Won't do that either ... will carry it around in a backpack. You do not operate it hand-held anyway.

    How old is the camera? Everything looks in such pristine condition!

    Congrats on the purchase! I'm looking forward to seeing your images.

    Well, it is rather young, the camera is from 2008, although the wood used is 400 years old ;-)

    The lenses are much older than the camera.
