I'm sure it matters how critical your applications are.  In my case, I was
told the prior owner was a "defense contractor", so who knows what they did
with it....but I can say that for my purposes, which are mostly to have a
good time and (eventually) learn to take pictures, it's 'way more than good
enough.  I do plan to take apart that which can and should be taken apart
and clean it, one of these days - the eyepieces are a little dusty (so
thanks, Tim, for the advice about cleaning).

Today I studied the edges of my fingernails.  I would recommend that
gardeners *not* do this.  It can be alarming.  At least I didn't see little
wiggly things.
