Years ago I bought a Bronica SQA which was represented as well used but working perfectly. When I opened the box, my initial thought was that of a 10 year old NYC taxi. VERY well used. But it worked flawlessly for 6-7 years. My camera repair guy said "don't try to fix what is not broken". He had a lot of Hasselblad customers but always said the Bronica's were more reliable. I only sold it after it has sat unused for 2-3 years as I was using a Mamiya 7.
