    It is very unsual to see a black WLF in such unmarked condition. It is very common for the black paint to be lost.

    The ‘third style’ hood (42315 chrome, 42323 black) was introduced in 1984. These hoods were supplied with all the V-System bodies (500 series and 2000 series, except the 202FA, 203FA and 205TCC/FCC).

    The magnification of the viewing screen by the focusing hood magnifier with this model is 4.5x times, a significant improvement over the older models 2.5x times. Furthermore, it opens and closed more easily than the previous version. It has a removable panel for the magnifier lens and can have eyepiece dioptre correction panels fitted.
