Upload & Sell: Off
My Minolta XD11 arrived. It was supposedly from storage so hadn't been used. Was absolutely filthy, no lens cap and unfortunately had batteries still installed which had corroded. Tried some fresh batteries but it wouldn't fire...
Spent the last hour cleaning it it all up inside and out, tightened all the screws as well as the film speed dial which was very loose. Cleaned the viewfinder and focusing screen, scratched off the corroded lumps from the battery compartment cap and now I have an near mint, working XD11, not to mention a very cheap one. Will have to get some photos of it before I replace the light seals and give it a test roll. Looks beautiful and makes my X700 feel like a plastic mess. That one will be up on ebay asap, looking forward to shooting with the XD11, its a great all metal camera. Just a shame the seller didn't know what he was selling, and could have at least taken the strap off before shipping it so that the it didn't leave a few fresh scratches on one side...
