It's the one Jen got me for Christmas, the shutter is sticky, and the RF glass is so filthy you almost can't see the RF patch. I think the shutter works okay but needs cleaning up; the rest of it looks good, maybe that's only skin deep though! It has a Sonnar 50mm f2 lens with a little spot on it, maybe separation, but I used it for half a roll on my Kiev and you couldn't tell the difference.
Got the shutter from a Super Ikonta III but it won't go on my IV, too many small differences. Ah well, keep looking I guess.

I think I got lucky doing mine, there is a pin that holds some of the gears and if it comes out then you have to resync everything. Seems to be working OK. I got a Pentax MG (later version of the MV) to use for spares, listed as locked up mirror and won't wind. I noticed the shutter wasn't down fully so I gently helped it along, bam the mirror flips down and it works! 3.95 inc post.

Blimey! You the lucky one just now alright. I'm going to sell the Contessamatic and Ensign Selfix 820, been taking some pics. The latter will go for serious money but the Contessamatic I'm willing to give to someone on the org if they pay the postage. Here is an example of one (the E model, with rangefinder):

Mine is all good except the meter is dead, and the case has a short strap. The strap is easy to sort, you get another strap, they were made to be able to take the long bit off and reattached the ends by a buckle.

Oh, and I got a Canon AL-1 for 4.95 from the same seller. The battery catch is broken but nothing a bit of duct tape couldn't sort! I'll pass on the Contessamatic thanks, maybe the others might be interested?

Poo, the rangefinder on the Kiev is well out at infinity. I will need to take the faceplate off at some point and adjust it. So what are you lot up to?

Swimming lessons (me), and eyeball-deep in pedals that need regreasing. The Spawn has just changed bikes and I've got bikes coming out of my ears, most of them with rumbly pedals. Going to turn some of them back into cash though.

I took the X700, the Bessa and the new Perkeo to Duxford. The Perkeo seems to lag a little when the shutter release is pressed. If I push harder it will release normally but then I risk camera shake. The X700 seemed to perform well, and the Bessa was spot on. I shot three rolls of 120 and three rolls of 35mm. Will do the black and white this weekend and send off the colour.
