2510933HiddenBlack SP well used, lots of brass showing, no dents or dings, all shutter speeds sound right, self timer works. I suspect this was used by a pro who was not concerned with cosmetics as long as the shutter was good. I bought the body and lens separately. 55mm f2 Super-Takumar.Ebay

2473483HiddenBlack Asahi SP, with some corner brassing, seems to be working but is missing the cover over the frame counter (replaced one month after purchase). The meter works, though accuracy hasn't been tested. The shutter speeds seem to be in the ballpark, and the VF and mirror are clean. It came with an Auto-Takumar 55mm f/2.2, alone worth the price, IMHO.Mt. Dora, FL

Plenty of honest wear, and was 'capping' on the 1/1000 and 1/500 speeds. Spent a few evenings exercising the shutter, and it sorted itself out!
