So i picked up a cheap a850 and before I got too far into it, the shutter mirror fell off. The mirror did not break so I’m going to attempt re gluing it.

Anyone have this happen and were you able to fix it properly?

EDIT: I’ve ordered the same adhesive the factory used som I’m going to attempt fixing myself. The repair costs if the shop will actually fix a body this old will be more than it’s worth
