The F3 is a beautiful machine, enjoy it. And welcome!

If you don't want the camera, I'll take it!
Thanks for all the help ya'll.
I once held an F3 which had a shutter curtain that was completely bare Ti except for the low spots. The lens mount had also partly fallen off. Did the shutter fire? yes it did. F3s don't die easy.
I had a F3 with a curtain that looks worse than that and it was fine.
