    I always set my cigar down when using my camera. Inevitably I'll burn myself or the camera if I don't.

    Drinking is far more dangerous.

    I gave up reading non-serious answers. The truth is that the smoke particulates are rater sharp jagged hard ash which can coat the lens with a light film reducing sharpness and contrast. This can be removed, but if your "scrubbing" is too harsh the small hard particles can cause small scratches in the coating which is permanent.

    Since your camera is closed and sealed, the only effect would take place when changing lenses or film.

    The chemicals in the smoke are harmless to film but deadly to people.

    I think you'd have to actually put cigars out on the front element before contrast and sharpness suffer...

    You did two things right:
    1. Bought it at KEH
    2. Returned it

    They will have another for you.

    I believe Brassai use to time his night exposures by the time it took him to smoke a particular cigarette. - "a Gauloise for a certain light, a Boyard if it was darker".

    Good thing his cameras were mechanical then (weren't they?)
