The camera is in excellent cosmetic condition without damage.
It is working but there are a couple of points to make you aware of.
"B" setting is inconsistent, it sometimes sticks open until the winder is actuated.
30th sec speed is very slow.
60th, 125th and 250th seem ok.
When the winder gets to its furthest end of the stroke, it has a bit of extra resistance but does not need huge amounts of force to complete it's action.

Good points
Aperture and focus move well.
Viewfinder is clear.
Lens is very clear, without fungus.
Self timer works.
Light meter reacts to light.
Internally very clean.


I believe this model to be rare as I cannot find another that has the same combination of features.
For example, the shutter speeds only go from 30th to 250th whereas some models have slower speeds starting at 1 sec.
Also, This has a built in uncoupled light meter.
In the meantime, if anyone knows any other info about this model I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks.
