I’ll second the comment about the viewfinder made by Bags27. Focusing was really tough.

I do not have any samples to show, in reply to your question, because I never got past the “Let’s run a roll or two through here, and see how they look.” phase. I so wanted to love this camera. Large film size, classic 2x3 proportion, rangefinder, great Fujifilm glass. What could be bad?

I live in the US, and reached out to JCH in Tokyo to find a GSW690II for me. I specifically wanted the wide angle vs the regular one. He found a really nice one, and I had the light seals redone locally. But that rangefinder was dim, small, and there was very little contrast in the patch where you focus, so unless you wanted to go small aperture all the time, focusing was difficult.

And they are huge!

I sold it.
