Well, I wouldn't go as far as to compare them to an F. Do you realise that a new F in say 1970, with a meter prism and f1.4 lens was 1/4 the cost of a new small car? Fs are one of the greatest bargains out there, so are F2s. But again, these will need a CLA too. It's part of using this equipment. Any camera I get, I assume that no matter how nice it's cosmetic condition, it will need a complete overhaul.
