Hi everyone,

I received a Leicina Special from super8camerashop a few days ago and noticed today that there is a small diagonal scratch in the right hand corner of the beamsplitter prism (the rectangular piece of glass that's visible on the camera when you remove the lens. I've already emailed Mr Uhmeyer to request a return/full refund, and am awaiting his reply, but wanted to find out whether the scratch would have been noticable in the image.

It's a real shame because the lens was clean and the camera seemed to be working mechanically. And I'll be out the 100 USD I already paid for in outbound shipping plus additional return shipping.

Appreciate any infomation/advice the Leicina shooters on this board can give me.

cheers, May Lin
