I just got another old Olympus OM-1 in black. This one an early MD with the sticker on the top cover. It is nearly perfect cosmetically but has a gummy return lever and disconnected meter. Even the flash shoe is uncracked.
Of course the seals are shot and the prism is showing the tiniest intrusion of grunge. I can save it.
It was just too pretty to pass up. Nice black ones are harder to find and I only had 3 to go with the 4 chrome ones. Now I'm balanced and at peace.
It's been about 30 days now ,but my last find was a nearly new (minty?)Minolta Uniomat. A 1960's rangefinder at a cost of 5 bucks ! Shipping ? well that cost 12. ugg! All is in good order it's breese to use and easy on the eyes. All in all a keeper.
