|Return an used F2 on arrival if it has serious signs of fungus|
Since around 2014, sellers in Asia started selling used F2s on ebay. Their F2s appear to be excellent buys, as they look very clean and at good prices even when shipping and taxes are added. However, buyers should be aware that Asia is very humid, and some of these cameras could have been badly stored and they would have severe fungus and corrosion inside.
Photos below are a fungus ridden F2 I received from a customer, and I knew if the outside was this bad, the inside would be much worse. Since my customer had only received it a few days earlier, I told him it’s better to return the camera to the seller in Asia, for a full refund as it’s expensive to have it restored. The seller accepted the return, after my customer sent him these photos.
Always return an used F2 on arrival if it has serious signs of fungus. It’s not worth to have it serviced.
