    Hello all again, I did finally purchase my hassy kit and it's a joy to use.
    The body is in great condition and the only fault I can really find is that the internal flocking has some cracks in it. I remember seeing a camera on ebay with cracks in it's internal flocking except that it was much worse. (ie., disintegrating into tiny bits) It's also slightly apparent on the body shutter flaps.

    I'm hoping that this won't get worse with time but was also wondering if I should worry about this?

    The inside of my camear has a few cracks in it, and it's been working perfectly; I think it's really only a cosmetic issue, at least until it starts disintigrating.
