Pierre for sure Mag plays a major role in Konvas operation. i didnt want to
say that it is irrelevant. also i didnt want to suggest that ANY mag can go
on OSTCAM but only one that have hole for the registration pin. what i
wanted to say is: if camera has that problem, and if ghosting starts to
appire form time to time, you cand change the mags (as long as they are for
OSTCAM) and there wil be no difference. also same mag on other OSTCAM will
perform 100%. therfore conclusion is that its Body and movement issue
rather then Mag.
Mag on Konvas and CM3 is a key to good operation and all problems i ever
had with Konvas ware always Mag related. to be fair Olex mag mod is grate
and i love my modified and serviced mags
