    I'm gonna have to see if I can find and replace the missing filters definately and maybe a flash bulb for sake of completion, there is sum stuff rattling around in the bottom of the box. I'll have to see what that all is, I know one thing is a batterie, Wich I doubt still holds power but neat to have.

    If it takes the standard blue glass ones I think I might have a pack or two in a box somewhere.

    Another great find! Myself, I can never resist camera's like that, especially in the box with all the stuff.

    reciept

    I'll have to look at the flash bulb info again, I skimmed it over, seein as I don't make a habbit of flash useage I did not pay a god awefull lot of attention to it.


    I hope so, I have gotten so accustomed to shutter speeds of up to a grand, I am worried about my ability seein as I am confined to 1/400 and below. A well perfoming lens should definately help boost my enjoyment of it.

    Her previous owner took really good care of it and used it with frequency from what I can tell, however I think I have found what had done it in :( It seems to have been dropped, the view finder is way off. I am going to see if I can get it repaired but if not I'll have to figure it out and compensate, Not a big deal. As it turns out the batteries where left in the flash (I think The owner died and her kid is selling it) .....the damage is light, I can fix that my self. As it turns out the three filters I have where the only three that came with the set, so that is complete afterall and the glass of the lens is imaculet.

    New pics of it all cleaned up
