Overall condition is very good for age, showing normal signs of use. Chrome is nice and bright, no dents or scratches, just a few "bright marks" on chrome - which is pretty normal with all cameras. Black body rim is excellent, with minor loss of paint on rim. Overall a tidy example of a superb camera
