developing the first roll, I noticed that the shutter did not completely
open when using 1/1000 and 1/2000 shutter speeds. The shutter exposed
half a frame for 1000 and one-quarter frame for 2000. Do you think it
is  a serious problem that may require replacement of the shutter or do
you think it could be solved by a CLA. Any opinions would be
