If someone who has sold 500 cameras and related items shows a blurry picture, assume there's something he doesn't want to show. Avoid.

I have bought several MF folders and a FED-2 on eBay. All in good working order - even the one from the "I don't know anything about..." seller. The camera was covered in 50 years accumulated dust and tobacco tar, but when I had cleaned it I found that it must have been sitting on a shelf for all that time: Perfect!
