Hey, what's up with a mirror that hangs up upon releasing the shutter? On one of the FE2s, I pressed the shutter button and a tiny "snick" was heard and everything locked up. Focus was way off through the lens so I pulled it and the mirror and hardly moved but was clearly on the way up. A little finger pressure unlodged it. Now the camera is working fine.

Lube needed? Something else?

Best Regards,
