(Please note that although we make every effort to fully function test our film camera bodies, we do not film test them, unless specifically stated in the description.)

Please note that the camera lenses that we sell on our site are often vintage and as such may show light signs of dust within the elements if held directly to a hard light source, which isn't visible to the naked eye, but this would have no impact on images.

Vintage lenses may also show some signs of oil on the aperture blades, this is common with vintage lenses, but if this has no effect on the opening and closing of the iris, it will not be mentioned in the product description. However, if any oil on the blades does have an effect on the opening and closing of the iris, it will be mentioned and the product listed as faulty.
