    <Wary of being sucked in again>
    i really dont know what you mean by that comment

    however back to what you said its some sort of canvas or flocking as you called it

    i have not seen it show up in any photos maybe a bit of glue would fix it ???

    Glue would probably fix it, but at this point I'd be wary of the camera's general condition.

    The camera should really be checked over carefully.
    The steps for a sharp photo which I gave a few posts ago should be repeated, but with the lens also => set at full aperture.
    That would help show any lens alignment problems.
    There are a whole series of tests which you can carry out using one roll of film; if interested, ask.

    erm looks like someone has rammed the wrong lens in, it might be a plastic cover and just needs tiding up.

    White cloth: Asbestos?

    Seriously, a contact cement would be a better choice than superglue (mainly, much less brittle).

    Yes, a joke... (at least I really hope so!)

    While concerns have been raised about radioactive lens elements, lead solder, mercury switches and batteries, asbestos in a cameras would really be news for me.

    The bottom line is that, cameras aren't health threatening (not physical health, at least.... )

    I also have 2 X700s and have used them many years with good results. I bought both new when they were current models. No one has mentioned lenses but I have several MD and MC lenses that are very sharp. I also have N75 and N80 Nikon cameras that I think have much better metering systems but I think that if you meter carefully with the X700 you would get good results.
