    Regardless whether the body works or not, you got a good deal.
    The 50/1.4 even non-AI can bring what you paid for the package and the SB28 even more.
    Does the camera work manually or in aperture priority? I seem to recall seeing this problem relatively often with the 8008.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Yes it still works perfectly on aperture priority (my preference anyway) and on manual (the electronic AF-assist feature is nice!).

    I kinda wonder if the contacts are dirty, either on your lenses, or on the body itself. If it's more than that, I'd probably consider getting another body instead. KEH doesn't charge much for N8008's or F-801's. They're good little bodies, and I'd considered holding onto mine as a car camera, maybe with a 50f1.8 Series E attached, but wanted my F2A paid off, so I could get it out of the repair shop. I let it go.
