Thread: What's this in my viewfinder?!

  1. #1

    Unhappy What's this in my viewfinder?!

    Hello, I'm new to film photography, and I've just acquired an Olympus OM1. Unfortunately, I didn't notice the black stains(?) in the viewfinder while testing the camera out, as we were in a poorly lit place.



    The seller says that the camera has been CLA-ed, though I'm not sure when he had it done.

    Any advice for this newbie here will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    A lint across the center. But the lower area of the viewfinder picture looks rather horrible, like massive fungus growth.
