History of the Film Plane Indicator

I'm not sure what made me think about this, but I'm curious how the Φ symbol became the standard film plane indicator. I'd also like to know when it was first adopted and by what maker.

Compared to what I've seen on the market this body/shutter are pretty clean. So I'm hoping CLA gets shutter issue worked out.

Great points. I aim for heavy contrast and the Jupiter shots I've seen, while plenty sharp for me, are as you say on the flatter side.

No glasses so I like the 35 lines, but all the Canon 35's I've...
