A very nice CL. It has some very small marks from careful use. On the
bottom it has few more marks. Check the pictures. Overall however this
camera looks pretty nice for its age. The good thing is that the vf is
very clear and bright.
The camera is checked by Wil van Manen in the Netherlands. Everything
was okay except the on/of mechanism under the advance lever has been
overhauled. The light meter has been calibrated. After this calibration
the battery check does not go to exactly the middle position. It goes a
bit above. This is because the meter cell in the camera is a bit off
because of it's age. After calibration of the cell the battery check is
a bit off.
It comes with a good mercury battery. It has not been converted to
modern battery's because it is better to use an adapter. An adapter will
give you more consistent readings over the battery life. But then again
the supplied mercury battery will last almost for ever.
All in all a very nice camera ready for years of good service. Comes
with the body cap.
