One word of advice, don't use the camera, even for extensive testing, with this condition. My LX required $175 in repairs and adjustments, many of which seem to have been caused by operating with a sticky mirror.

My wife's Contax RTS seems to have suffered even more damage, possibly because the lens was removed with the mirror stuck.

It's working like a "new" one now that Eric has done his magic to it.


I posted a couple of shots already.
