All features and specs has been tested and there are working properly. Shutter fires accordingly at all speeds.  The prismatic viewfinder and the viewing eyepiece are clean and free from blemish but some presence of dust. Timer, film crank lever, light meter (tested), film counter, shutter speeds rings and ASA dial are also in good working condition. Based from its outer and inner appearances, we may say that its last owner may have used it frequently but maintained its condition, well kept. The paint and body condition is as shown in the picture. There is a minor problem with this body, which is, the glass cover for the light meter has dislocated and was missing in action. I have replaced it by using a strip of clear sellotape, just to prevent dust from coming in, you can see in the image above, but again the light meter is 100% working, tested. Minor dent on the lens thread, it may not permit you to use lens filter.

Apart from that, this camera is bundled with Minolta Auto Rokkor-PF 50mm lens with maximum aperture of f/1.4. This combination suits the need of taking portrait with shallow depth of field, or also known as "bokeh". Glass is clean, no haze and fungus, but some presence of dust. No oil stain at the blades; but some presence of fungus leftover but it will not affect the movement of the blade; tested. Focusing ring turns accordingly, aperture open and close smoothly at all f-value, however, the filter thread was dented, it may not permit the usage of lens filter. Else, what can I say, its a Rokkor. Plus, we'll also provide a soft copy of its manual for your reference Besides that, as the I just changed  the light seals and mirror buffer, so you don't have to worry. Just load film in it and shoot!.
