    Jon Goodman is aptly described by his name!

    Looking through this forum Jon Goodman was reccomended as a source for seal kits. I contacted him by email. This is the my post on PentaxForums.com:

    Looking in apug.org for advice on resealing my Olympus OM-2n, Jon Goodman was cited as the go-to man for a seals kit with good instructions. He had been selling via ebay, but no more, so I sent him an email at jgood21967@aol.com He replied two days later, apologized for the delay (!) and said that if I sent him my mailing address he'd ship the kit off in the morning, and I could send him a check, money order, or cash for $9.00 plus $1.00 shipping at my convenience! Truly his name is what he is!

    What a refreshing business model! And my check truly is in the mail.

    Jon has trusted me also, in deals we have had. I received a nice camera and other goodies from him in similiar transactions, before he received my payment. Yes, a very good fellow to deal with. Would be nice if more people were like him.
    I certainly hope that trust is never betrayed by anyone.

    I second the sentiments... Jon is a great person to deal with and I've been using his seal kits for years with success.

    I've had a couple transactions with Jon. He's Jon Awesomeman in my book.

    I've sung his praises on PentaxForums.com.

    The kit arrived today. The instructions seem clear enough, although I want to have the camera in hand and review the mirror instructions before I start. Nice to see that the long strips top and bottom don't need adhesive.

    Funny, my ancient Retina I, with uncoated f3.5 Ektar, has no seals and never did. It uses what amounts to a simple labyrinth to exclude light. I wonder why manufacturers began using plastic foam, which deteriorates over time.

    Cheap foam, is cheaper than the extra machining to tight tolerances to keep the light out.
