    Spicy, I'm not really trying to argue with you... But I'm pretty sure I saw framelines in the viewfinder. I'm not sure what else it could have been.

    If it does need shutter work I'll second the Youxin Ye recommendation.
    He can even get a resilvered mirror to get the rangefinder back in usuable shape.

    Just google his name as I don't have his contact info handy.
    Super dude and usually doesn't have the backup most of the others do.

    Essex (in NJ) is another good one but I'd call them first as there is info that Hurricane Sandy messed with them.

    Thanks, Bruce! I am passing all of this along - I really appreciate the info!

    It's true, the IIIG has got framelines _and_ two finder windows

    I would strongly recommend finding someone other than Youxin to service such a precious camera.
    Those who know, shoot film

    You don't necessarily need to go into details here, but did you have a bad first-hand experience? Several others have offered recommendations, so I'm curious to know why you might disagree. You can PM me if you'd like.
