On a happier note, i just picked up a Canon QL17. My second one actually, but this one is not as clean. Good price, not great. However what motivated me to get it is that I was able to test the shutter. It works perfectly!
Many of the ones for sale online dont work well. And the QL17 is a real pain to fix.
Ah, heres some nice pics of it.
Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.
