    Konis are great but the backs usually need a CLA for them to work properly. When the backs screw up you end up not being able to get 10 shots on a roll or you have overlapping frames. Unless you bought it from someone who already had the back CLAed- in which case it's not under $200.

    I have three backs, and I've never had that problem. And a CLA is not that expensive. It would probably not be a bad idea to let Greg Weber look over a camera or back anyway. I did just get a back serviced, for other reasons than frame spacing problems, and while he had it Greg did lube the clutch, which is where the problems arise if there are going to be any problems. The original lubricant was whale oil, and after all these years, it's not surprising that the lubricant needs to be replaced.
