Whichever one you go for allow for a cla. Things that show up on cameras
that age are culred shutter blinds, winder bearing problems leading to
uneven film spacing, and shutter speed problems. I used my 28 on both my
M4-2 and M6 and I used the external finder on it and it was great. The
frames in the M6 are useless IMO - the 0.56 however is grrreat!
