Got my MG1 last week, and it is in exceptional condition. It is working correctly and not suffering from the POD. It has that little clunk when winding on, which the Yashica Electro 35 which I bought before the MG1, does not have. I now realise what a Yashica should sound like when working correctly.
But having said that, although the 35 winds on smoothly, and suggests POD problem, my first film through shows possible light leak on some shots; together with possible lens flare in other shots; yet a lot of the shots have come out perfectly.
