KEH has a of cameras (F, F2, FA, FM2 that I've noticed) that are listed as having a wrinkled shutter curtain. Most of these items are also listed in excellent condition. I know from experience that KEH's grading is, if anything, very conservative, so I assume that there is nothing functionally wrong with these shutters. Is that a reasonable assumption?

A little more digging on their site seems to turn up that few of the AF cameras have the listing, while a fair number (7?) of the MF ones do. I'm sure that part of this just that the MFs are older, and I sure can't think of a good reason why AF bodies would be less susceptible to whatever causes wrinkles. Maybe new shutter designs??
