A pleasant purchase

I picked up a ME Super from ebay the other day and having received the camera, I am more than pleased. Granted it only has a f/2.0 50mm lens but in examining the camera, I would be surprised if its had 10 rolls of film run through it total. There is not a scratch to be found on this thing anywhere and not only is the plastic still on the base of the camera, it's still got the little strip of plastic under the lens mount. Speaking of the lens mount, when I removed the lens to check on the mirror baffle foam, I noticed the lens was a little stiff. I honestly believe that may have been the first time the lens has been removed from the camera. The face of the lens mount shows no wear marks from lenses being removed. It as with the rest of the camera is in pristine (mint) condition. In fact, the strap for the camera along with the rubber shoulder pad for the strap are still sealed in their original packaging. Unlike frank, I didn't get a 1.2 lens but I did get a darn clean camera.
