Couple of questions about Pen Fs.
1) Just acquired a nice Gothic F with matching 38mm F lens for a
reasonable price (by present day standards). I've replaced the hinge
seal and the mirror bump stops. There seems to be no seal in the top
slot (unlike the FV). The F door doesn't have the cut out that the FV
has by the counter-reset tab. Do I need foam there?
2) Having done all that, I find that the camera fires perfectly, until I
put a lens on it, when the mirror sticks open. I presume that this means
there's crud in the mechanism. Can this be rectified by removing the
bottom cover, or is there more involved (I suspect that I know the
answer, but I'll ask anyway)? Can the bottom cover be removed without
anything falling out?
3)I'm looking for the correct case for a Pen 25/2.8. Since these cases
are not marked, it's a bit of a challenge. Can anyone let me know the
outside height of the case? The lens WILL fit in a case that's 2.75
inches high, but that's quite tight.
