Jason,

It works like new. I did have it overhauled and converted to use the silver batteries a couple years ago, but, even beforehand it was fairly accurate, just jumpy. As seen in the photo that I posted in your thread, the FTn prism is currently removed and a very battered eyelevel prism is in its place. Got the camera from a guy I know who used to run a repair shop in Seattle. He decided to move to Oregon, and, before he moved away, I offered him $75 for the body with the FTn prism, and he accepted it. When I loaded it with film, I realized that it had the motor drive plate installed, so I essentially got that for free, even though it usually goes for $90-$125ish. The F-36 drive was added last year.
