Robust camera, well regarded by advanced amateurs and semi-pro photographers, but user-friendly for a beginner. Full user manual is available at

    Shutter, film transport and self-timer work properly. Meter appears to respond properly to light, shutter and lens settings (accuracy was not verified with film). Shutter is squeak-free. Light seals and mirror guard have been replaced.

    Very good, with no dents, cracks or other major blemishes. Minor scuffs throughout, consistent with average use and age. Some brassing and scratches on the bottom - please see photos. Sharp, legible lettering on the dials. Viewfinder is dust-free, however there is some dust on the upper surface of the focusing screen (will not affect photo quality). Original leatherette is in excellent condition. Battery door is intact.
