    Jon Goodman has replacement seals for it and an SR44 will work well enough for testing. I second the suggestion to load it up with a roll of tri-x or FP5 and shoot some photos of the donor.

    Oh, and my lens wobbles just a bit, too. Nothing to worry about. Keep away from the self timer though. They tend to jam.

    It's worth keeping. It's one of the most sought after fixed lens rangefinder cameras with it's fast lens and great optical quality. I wouldn't say it's ease of use is apparent. I couldn't figure out how to use it when I first held one, but I think the one I tried out might have been broken, haha.

    Awesome!!!

    Thanks guys.. It also came with exclusive flash on the strap a pouch. I thanked profusely. She is 92. I think with new light baffle, it will be something to hang onto.

    Here is a link to Jons instructions for seal replacement. I have done one, it's not hard.

    Only real problem you might have is if the battery corroded the light meter wire. If so, you have to open the camera body to replace it. Not especially easy.

    sent from phone. excuse my typing.

    In the apug gallery photos of the Apug convention held in Toronto are some photos I had taken with that model canon...see "fine wine", and several others including Les in the dark room. All existing light photos.

    Mine doesn't have any problem but instead of buying compatible battery I simply use it in manual mode sans meter. Works great.

    Jon also sells inexpensive adapters that permit using low cost hearing aid batteries in place of the 625 batteries originally used in these cameras.
