Another Oly 35SP question!!!
Had a good look at my 35SP.
Done the seals and it certainly took more than 90 mins to get out all the 'grot'.
The body number is 367874.
The body covering is the original, intact, and in place except for a slight 'lift-off' on one side of the lens.
However this covering has shrunk in all direction resulting in a gap all the way round. But the double sided tape hasn't shrunk. As a result I have an edge of dirt round each piece of covering.
I realise that during a period of time and with various production runs in the manufacturing of cameras materials change. So have I got a camera from a bad run or is this a general issue with Oly 35SP camera bodies?
It looks as if I really should do a recovering unless careful use of a knife and lighter fuel will remove the overlapping tape edge. I am going to try this because I can then retain the embossed Olympus/Tokyo on the back covering.
Please any sensible thoughts/observations ?
