Here is a classic from the 60s. Near mint condition. Been an outstanding camera. Recently had a CLA ($150 from Chris Sherlock in NZ) of the shutter and components so it should be good to go for another 50 years and longer. I am the second owner, the original owner was my wife's grandfather. Everything works perfect, even the light meter!

I have seen the value of these all over the place. So please kindly make me a PM offer to buy or trade if you are interested in this absolute GEM!

35mm.

    Nice looking little 'c'! The CLA adds a lot of value by removing the usual questions prospective buyers have about 'mature' cameras.

    Thank you!! Shes a good little camera. Lens is pristine, and much to my recent surprise is removable lol. I guess there is a kit you can buy to add different lenses. Learn something new everyday (and I have had this camera since 2010) lol
