Thing to Check on a 500C
I came home from the camera store yesterday with a 500C outfit-50mm, 80mm, 150mm, and 250mm along with two backs(12 and A12) and a few other odds and ends. It's "on loan" pending me firmly committing to buying it. I really need to let them know by 3:00(EST) but can probably get an extra day or two(especially with the impending weather that also has me home from work today).
All the lenses are chrome with Synchro-Compur shutters, and the body is from 1960. So far, I know the 80mm needs a service as the focus feels like it has peanut butter in it and the slow speeds are dead. Otherwise, all the glass is clear.
I ran a roll of Delta 100(a film I don't normally shoot, but had a bunch of expired stuff sitting in the freezer) through the A12 back with the 50 and 80, and I'm going to develop that in a few minutes to check registration.
Is there anything else I should be aware of before I firmly commit to it? At $1200, the price, IMO, is more than fair considering the condition(nice, but used and all the lenses are engraved). It's also going to mean that I'll be selling my SQ-A outfit on Ebay pretty quickly to buy it.
Any advice? Thanks.
