    I've got mine...and one's enough for me. Plus, I won my bid at $171!

    Looks like it took a tumble....ding to the right of the advance lever. Could've sustained internal damage.

    Good catch. Certainly worth an inquiry to the seller.

    well- the ad says the ding is 'cosmetic'. I would certainly take that to mean that it does not affect the operation of the camera at all. Clearly- the seller is now bound to guarantee that's the case, and would refund your money were it not the case, right?

    No HP !! Doh!!

    Although I suppose one could buy an HP finder after buying the body.

    Great camera though. I love and baby mine so much, its not funny.

    I had an FM2n with a comparable ding: It fell 1.5m on solid marble but was still usable (which saved the end of my back). I would not buy a dead cat from someone calling such a ding "cosmetic" as it is a clear sign of a severe impact which he tries to hide from his potentials buyers.

    best
