Description

Condition 96%. Excellent example of this king of the fixed lens coupled rangefinder. These cameras are largely unknown in the UK, as they were not manafactured in large quantities, and were extremely expensive in their day. But they certainly weren't overpriced: what other options were there for a 35mm coupled rangefinder with 1:1 parallax corrected viewfinder, 48mm F2 0r F1.8 (U.S Market) Summicron quality lens, ergonomic film advance, synchro'd shutter, and build quality and reliability to rival if not surpass Zeiss? We are finding it harder and harder to source these from Japan, as the secret is kind of out now, and those who know, know. Get one while you can, as these will be a thousand pounds before too long. This example is excellent: light use only to body, clear optics, crisp shutter, lovely viewfinder with orange contrast filter fitted to improve RF image, smooth focus and film advance.
