Item as described
All our classic, vintage photographic and scientific items are USED unless otherwise stated in the description. None of the cameras, lenses or camera accessories, or other equipment which we are listing have been film tested unless specifically stated in the description. We try to describe all of our items as accurately as possible. Lenses and camera shutters are physically tested only, by eye and ear/sound. Lens glass and various other optical items such as rangefinders and viewfinders are by visual inspection only. Keep in mind that most lenses, even brand new lenses may have dust particles inside. It has no affect on image results whatsoever. Most items are collectible and sold accordingly. If you intend on using the items in the field or for professional reasons, it is advisable to have the item serviced or cleaned, lubricated and adjusted for ultimate perfection. All of our items are sold AS IS with no returns. Please be aware, you are buying from a professional vintage photographic dealer. You should expect everything to function reasonably well, and that optics have no problems that would noticeably affect image quality and results, unless we describe them otherwise. We try to mention obvious defects or faults and flaws. Please take into consideration that most of the items we sell are used, vintage classic optical collectible equipment. We do not service or repair or maintain or restore equipment (unless mentioned in the description). At best we give the equipment a clean before photography. We test it for function, but can’t guarantee accuracy due to temperamental nature of such vintage classical equipment.
Although we try to give accurate descriptions of our items, it is possible at times to omit or overlook points that may seem unimportant to us but very important to YOU.
