Yeppers. Size 312 with a single small round rubber washer for each, stretched around the edge. Funny, I purchased and revived a second 701 between my last post and this reply. The meter on this one, I thought was wonky too, but after a bit of sleuthing - I realized the iris of the included lens wasn't closing down - giving flaky readings. Duh.

So sometime this weekend, I'll probably tear down that lens and try to get the aperture working again. If I can't get it working - I figure it wasn't working when I got it so...nothing lost.
