...red flag! Repair techs frequently keep unrepairable bodies as a source for parts and sometimes will sell several in a lot as "parts only". Chances are body #2 also has problems.

I figured it might be something along those lines, but it's no bother. I'll end up with 2 cameras for 4, so if the worst happens I'll have plenty of spare parts! Might get lucky and be able to get a working camera from the two though.

I got the second camera from the seller and the shutter fires perfectly on this one! The aperture lever ring seems to be stiff and feels a bit gritty when turning the aperture ring on the lens though. Any thoughts on how to fix it?
