    I've sent work to Carol. She does great work, is fast, and she is just a great lady to do business with.

    The preview lever of Copals actuate a pin-and-arm arrangement that forces the aperture blades open against spring pressure. As you probably already know, the normal movement is like that of a light switch: Up for light, Down for dark. If the preview lever gets bumped diagonally with sufficient force, the internal linkages may get misaligned. But the action of the return spring sometimes shifts the components back into the normal arrangement, and the problem disappears for a while. Then it comes back again - when you least expect it. If the original source of the problem is severe enough, the internal misalignment will result in the blades locking up. Just curious: How do you normally transport or store your LF lenses?
    I normally transport my lenses on their boards inside a Gnass lens bag. I am planning to take the lens and shutter to the local camera repair shop tomorrow on my way home from work.

    I suppose I shouldn't complain. At least I caught this problem at home, not in the field like with my 355 G-Claron.
