Hi everyone! I just got hold of an immaculate, super-mint black Zenit E (late model 1981) with an equally mint Helios 44-2, not a single dust speck inside! It's my 4th Zenit, (my first E). The selenium light meter is working and accurate compared with my Canon G11's metering. However, i made a small observation that worries me: When looking through the light meter's read out window on the left of the prism housing with light coming through the lens, i can see light coming back through, i think i can look directly into the mirror when in its lowered position. When the shutter is activated though and the mirror is raised, no light comes back through the window, i checked it in Bulb with the mirror continuously up and the light is blocked. Is this normal? I've heard about light leaks from this window when the seals degrade and maybe this is the reason for the absolutely mint condition of the camera, perhaps the previous owner just decided to stop using it instead of fixing it. On the other hand, if no light comes back when the shutter is activated it means no light goes to the film, yes? Perhaps a test roll of film will be the easiest way to answer this. Any feedback from "E" owners is welcome. Thanks!
