I just got one of these on ebay for a great price. Unfortunately it was packed poorly and the lens was damaged in shipping so I have to return it. However, it did give me a minute to familiarize myself with the camera a bit.

My question is, I noticed when I pulled the "manual/auto" light meter button to activate the manual setting, the meter in the lens did not move when i turned the dial. does that mean it is broken? I want to know so the next time one pops up on ebay, I can make sure to have the seller test it.

Thanks,

Andy

Yes, the manual control is probably defective.
This is a common problem on these cameras.
