Cool camera. I used to sell Konicas long, long ago. The T3 had the absolute smoothest film winding lever. Only thing that touched it were Leica M rangefinders. It was also built like a tank. Nearly featureless compared to this FS1. Enjoy the camera. Nice B&W images.

Your 57mm 1.2 is nice. Many camera companies made a 57-58mm lens so you could look with one eye thru the viewfinder and the other eye being . The two images are supposed to be the same size, allowing your brain to superimpose both into one image. Does that work with this body?
Always loved the 40mm f1.8 pancake lens. Ah, the memories.

had the 40mm f/1.8 with my first Konica FT-1... great camera.. plagued now because of the electronics... even though it a latter model than the FS-1.
Both has a sprocketless takeup spool, making it difficult to leave the leader out while rewinding.
Not sure on the "open eyes" thing, being a left eye guy... the camera was always centered on my face with RF types.
The T4 was the last manual wind model, it was built on the TC body which is similar in size to the FS/FP/FT bodies
It is still a good user body, and there is a repair guy for these Konicas.... so getting it back up to specks is still available.
so buying one cheap with the he expectation to get a CLA can be an Okay deal as a user.
The biggest issue was the camera covering... bad glue and leatherette material that shrunk caused it to separate from the body.
I have a 1979 Nikon F2 with the DP-1 finder that I will spend around $300 to have a complete service to.. not just a CLA.
That camera is worth it!... buy a DP-12 (Photomic AS) and I can use Ai only lenses with the meter. (E series and any AF Nikkor)

The Original F is also having a comeback.
But, the motors are mostly useless without a total overhaul with someone that is an electrician to rebuild the guts. OEM Parts are rare to find
I like my F2... self timer doesn't work along with 2s-10s speeds on the self timer, I have a DW-1 and a DP-1 with a bad meter.
Still want a DE-1 though.
