Yashica Lynx 14 - CLA or DIY?
I picked up a Lynx 14 off Ebay this weekend (arrived already, not bad) - it looks to be in good shape. All shutter speeds sound right, the aperture opens and closes easily. The meter seems dodgy, but I don't really care as I plan to get one of those VC hotshoe meters for my rapidly expanding collection of meterless cameras.
The only problem I find is that the vertical alignment seems off slightly and the viewfinder and RF patch are a bit dim. It's slow going to focus with the patch. Is it worth the cost of a CLA from Mark Hama or is it reasonable for a novice to clean up/align the RF without chancing completely FUBARing the camera?
I don't have a problem spending $50-60, this is a very cool little camera, but if I can do it myself so much the better.
