So the 700 got its first run out today. Very smooth to wind on and the EV dial and focus are silky smooth. The meter appears accurate according to the readings I took with my phone app and the rangefinder seems spot on.
I'll start a new thread once the film (Portra 400) has been shot, developed and scanned.
I wanted to add that the quality of the rangefinder 'window' is superb and the framing marks in the viewfinder look like new (maybe they are?).
