Found an old Practika at a flee market and I have some questions
1

Hi guys,

Today I saw a Praktica camera( probably made before the 60s) that had a shutter button infront rather than on the top plate. It had no advance lever just knobs (kind of like the Praktica iii) I would say a it is very nice camera, but it  not suitable for me so I left it but wanted to get the CZJ Biotar that came along with it. I have never seen a Biotar in such mint condition, absolutely spotless and still shining. The glass was clean But the Problem was that the aperture blades were not budging from f8-f16.  How can it be fixed?

Also I is the exacta mount Biotar inferior to the m42 mount?
