Shutter Type: Prontor SVS 8 Speed + B
This arrived with mixed blessings. I've been looking for
an affordable early Silette with multi-speed shutter for some time. This
one arrived in generally good condition and with a quick service the
shutter was up and running at all speeds. What I really liked was the
brightwork was in such good shape but sadly the front lens element is
probably beyond repair. The coating is badly pitted over quite a large
area which will make focus and sharp pictures virtually impossible.
However, all is not lost because I already have 3 other Silettes with the
Apotar 3.5 and I might be able to swap the element from one of these.
