F55 Shutter curtains

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Photography Singapore : One Thread

Hi! Recently, I purchased the F55. I'm aware that the shutter curtains are one of the delicate and sensitive components of the camera. I happened to notice that the curtains (though not bent or anything like that) don't really lie perfectly flat on each other. I noticed this when i hold it under light and view the curtains at a very slant view (bottom-up). In other words, there are points where the subsequent curtains don't rest tightly on each other. (Only two points of such) Is this common? As in maybe due to the mechanism not able to align a full 100%? Do I have to do anything? By the way, when viewed straight at the curtains, they looked perfectly ok. Please response. Thank You. Eric
