Hallo, I am seriously considering buying a small RF with fixed lens and central shutter. I am presently observing this auction on eBay. http://cgi.ebay.it/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290521694316&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT I asked the owner about the precision of the shutter times. He answered that times "within 1/30" were tested and found to be within tolerances. He hasn't got actual results as he did not test the camera personally. I am going to use the RF which I am going to buy with slides, using an external lightmetre. The camera seems to be clean, and I suppose the viewfinder and rangefinder have been actually brought to best performances. The doubt I have is about the shutter. Why did the repairer test only certain times and not others? Is there something I ignore? And what would he mean for "within 1/30"? It's usually slower times or faster times that give more problems? Possible answers: faster times are always reliable, no need to test them; faster times are always unreliable, no need to test them; slower times are always reliable, no need to test them; slower times are always unreliable, no need to test them; this camera is certainly not up to take properly exposed slides; this camera is very likely able to take properly exposed slides; it's a gamble, you'd rather wait for a camera for which serious tests were performed. Thanks for any help Fabrizio PS Would you pay 70 Euros for this camera? (it's the starting price).
