Slightly bended shutter blade - what do you think?
5 months ago

Hallo,

I recently bought a used Leica M8 in "great condition" at ebay in order to be able to collect some experience in the rangefinder world.

Having received the camera today, the condition is realy great despite a small bent of one shutter blade (see attached picture). At the moment, the camera is functioning well, but I am fearing that this small bend might lead to further and more serious damage...

What do you think? Sould I send the camera back?

Thanks for your kind support!

Best regards

Uli
