Does anyone with a 35RD have problems with irregular aperture shapes?
I have a local friendly dealer who I occasionally buy small cameras from for fun. He knows the sort of thing I like, and looks out for them for me. He'll service them too, but this is all done in a very slow, relaxed manner, which keeps the price down
Anyway, 3 months ago, he found me a very nice condition Olympus 35RD, and agreed to service it, including taking the lens to bits to clean it etcetera. I've read that the 35RD is a pain to service, and the lens sometimes gums up, so this seemed like a good idea. Fast forward 3 months, and the camera is finally with me.
So here's my problem. When I look at the shape of the open aperture, it's like a random shape. It's not a perfect pentagon each time, but is usually distorted in one way or another. I have the option of having his service guy look at it again to see if he can improve things, or just returning it for a full refund.
What I want to find out is whether most 35RDs behave like this? It doesn't seem to affect the pictures I've taken so far. Can anyone help?
