Grab it. may be good for parts for you in the future. Broken shutter mechanism is VERY rare, could have bad meter coil, but could also have not too much wrong with it. John, www.zuiko.com

No kidding, those parts are hard to find. Get it, maybe it isn't dead. I just bought an Agfa Isolette II for the case, and the camera was like new, everthing was great except typical lens and shutter problems.

as soon as the trader realized that he was the dummy with the shutter lock activated He withdrew the camera from auction, no doubt it will appear in the future as 'excellent condition all working good' some time soon
Next time i will just grab it ...
Maybe i should send him a bill for 'online diagnostic services'
