a few years ago i was on the verge of buying a 202 but a friend suggested that the "swing" mechanism tends to hang (in the center of the track ) and cause banding. is this a typical problem? or was this suggested because he knew that i was broke and it was probably a better idea for me to spend my $$ of food and shelter rather than photographic equipment.

if this sort of "hang-thing" does happen, is there a way to fix it, or is it just one of those quirky things that makes the camera akin to a state of mind ( like other lomos)?
