ALWAYS budget on a CLA unless it has recently been done or the camera is in regular use. Sit them on a shelf for years and it's gonna go sticky.
That old grandpa camera with low use can be a bargain but it WILL need a CLA...
This is true. I've bought over 100 'cords and 'flexes in the past 5 years or so.
I always measure shutter speeds.
How many have had reasonably accurate shutter speeds? Maybe two out of 100.
You should always expect to need a CLA with these, unless they have been regularly used up to the present day (which is rare).
