    What's the problem?

    Just buy a roll of cheap slide film, shoot and develop it. If the slides are okay, you invested just a few euros getting an information of the properly working condition of an extraordinary tough camera!

    It wouldn't be economically feasible to have an older camera repaired, especially if a newer/better camera could be had for little more money, and you certainly wouldn't get your money's worth out of it if you tried to sell it later. But then I do this all the time, because I like the camera in question. The money just doesn't enter into it for me.

    I had some shutter repair done last year on a couple of EOS 630, more expensive than the cameras are worth, but they're great cameras and they'll last me years yet.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    So you cleaned the shutter, saw nothing untoward, and now want to replace it?

    *touches F80 shutter with cloth* WTF I'm not doing that again, what is it made of, tin foil?

    Yeah right. My N90(American F90) beats my friend's N80 in every respect except in autofocus.

    Nope, that one's made of plastic. As are the 55/65/75
