Hello from new Member

I am sending my first message on this forum. I recently purchased an H3 on Ebay. When it arrived, it was not in working condition. The viewfinder does not show an image, probably because the mirror is stuck, I suppose. And the lens binds when you begin to screw it off.

I am wondering where and if I should send it off for repairs, depending on the advice I get from this list.

I also have a Spotmatic with the 1.4 Super Takumar lens, and a 645N medium format which I love dearly. I have only recently come to appreciate Pentax quality.

Any advice or experience would be appreciated.

Welcome to te forum, I would be inclined to get an estimate first, to work out if it's worthwhile having repaired.
