    Fair condition, all mechanics in good shape, some light specks of dust in the lens but otherwise glass is good. Cracking on the leather. Bellows look great. - 80$

    Hello!

    Are you still selling the camera? I would love to buy it :smile:

    let me know!

    thanks

    p.s. is the dust in the glass causing any problem when taking pictures?

    Can't speak for illumiquest, but dust inside of lenses is an incredibly common "thing" (not even an issue, really) straight from the manufacturer and I've never had an issue with small amounts inside of lenses showing up in photos, much less causing problems. I'm not trained in optics, but I imagine this has to do with the fact that they're right up on the glass elements, kind of like if you have a speck of dust right on the front of your glasses and they're right in front of your eyes.

    Looks like a nice camera and if I wasn't on a mad dash to sell some of my things, well.... I'd have to think long and hard about it.
