This was my second camera from Fedka and my second excellent experiance.

I had originally ordered a 4am body and a separate J8m lens. Yuri felt that one wasn't good enough to sell to me and so offered a 4a body instead. He also threw in a case and lens cap that I was not expecting all for the same price I originally was paying. Yuri, you're an angel

First impressions:
- yep, it's heavy. Serious heft to this camera. To me, that's a good thing.
- The contax grip is definately different. I can see it won't take much to get used to it, but it is really different.
- it's pretty. I really couldn't tell as well from the photos on the web, but it is a nice looking camera.
-loading film is serious strangeness to this newby. I finally got a roll of T400CN loaded, but that was an adventure!
-everything moves very smoothly. The focus wheel is very slick and I can see really coming to like it once I learn to keep my knuckles out of the rangefinder window.
-the first three rolls came back gorgeous (well, except for the pilot error ones :) and I can definately say this is one seriously fun camera. It will be fun learning to shoot up to its potential.

Seriously high "bang for the buck" value.
