Got this camera for a fiver. Was sold as-is and thus accept the risks as such.
Amazingly, the mechanism is sweet as a nut, casing is mint and looks almost like a new camera and actually I am very impressed with the quality and condition of the mechanism. Runs very quiet, too.
The bad bit:
The lens has some fogging due to some kind of condensation marks (not fungus). I wiped this off the front element, but there is also some on the back of the element that I cannot get to.
I cannot work out how to get the front lens element off (the rest seems to be okay) to clean the rear of it. Given how sound the mechanism etc seems, it would be worth it if I could clean it. I can see the halo around items in the viewfinder and on the short test film strip I shot when I look into direct light or a bright scene.
Is there something I am missing? There is very little information on disassembly for these cameras. Thanks guys!
