Seems OK - it was sold to me as having problems:
Needs Light Seals --- not much to the seals, hoping the half case will help
Shutter Faulty ---- slowest speeds are off? seemed ok when tested w/o film
Non Working Meter ---- pretty common with these
Missing Paint ---- good! makes it more authentic
That's why I got a good price. Plus, as I started to break down that list and once I had it in my hands, it is still a user as-is ALTHOUGH I won't really know until I get a roll through it.
That chrome 7 also seemed OK at first glance but a test roll showed bad shutter capping. It was fixed locally (Seattle) and that would be an option if the new-to-me black body has issues.
The chrome 7 prices online have really collapsed in the last couple of years -- all the way to $100 for a decent user. I would say buy one or two sold as a good functional camera -- maybe those $150-$200 are a better bet.
I'm at peace with the fact that I'm a collector and a user....
Collector seems to be a bad word with some
Any real black Canon rangefinder is a hard to resist item for me - they are and especially used-to-be rare and un-affordable.
