I have no idea how to operate it. I'm able to focus the split screen easily. If you want to know if the motor works, tell me what settings to make and what buttons to push.
It appears to be in very good condition. The ASA selector dial is cracked. It has a lens cap, lens hood, but no rubber eye cup. I don't see the hand crank the site mentions and I don't see how to open the spot where it should go.
