I sold a very clean Nikon Ftn to a guy who took it to the Altai Republic. I made certain to give him the manuals, one for the body and one for the Ftn finder. He came home with a whole bunch of overexposed slide film, because he never looked at the manuals and never knew to do the Nikon shuffle after changing lenses. I've no sympathy at all for lazy fools.
