Check that the seals are good to go, then go!

I saw your post on PF and figured you'd be on here too. Enjoy

Real nice! I would think the seals are deteriorated despite being in the box. The MX seals are not an easy DIY hence why I got one for free after the seller botched it.

The SE focusing screen is a nice touch if you are a landscaper and I paid £35 for a new one that was unopened for 40 years.

The MX is a great camera and the F* 300 f4.5 looks well cool on it!

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
