I like the picture of the K... entrance.
Did you use a tripod? At 5.6 with Delta 100 you probably were at 1/60 or so.
Thank you, Julio. No tripod, hand held and yes, 1/50 or lower due the cold. I'm going to lube this shutter in the places I think it needs and see the shutter performance when is this cold.

Thank you, Phil. But yesterday I found a better way to collimate the lens, I mean before I was measuring distances between the film location at the film holder and the ground glass, in this camera I have about 0.6mm of diference between them and I collimated the camera using the ground glass. I can't place shims in the ground glass to take it further back to align the film holder. The spring at the back door for using the ground glass doesn't allow me to do so.
This new way will be empting the roll film holder, place it in the camera and use a small matte glass to do all the process for this roll film holder specially after doing it adjust the rangefinder.
Yes I'm very "picky"? but if I can do it better why not going for it?
For the ergonomics, the first shots I was suffering a lot with the black slide thing, I didn't take it out completely so my right arm should avoid it meanwhile holding the camera for shooting, so far two ways of handling the camera, compisiong and focusing is one, shooting a bit different. One day I will try to remove the dark slide completely during the tour, I think the seals are good
