    I am selling my Agfa Record III with uncoupled rangefinder and solinar lens. The camera is in fantastic condition. No bumps or tears on the leather. It has one small scuff on the front. The lens and shutter work beautifully. I am hoping to get $200 for the camera due to it having the rare Solinar lens. Reasonable offers accepted. Photos will be sent upon request. Paypal only please.

    Hi -

    Can you please tell me if the bellows has been replaced, and if the shutter has been serviced? Also, is the focusing helicoid turning freely? Thanks.

    It has not been serviced under my ownership. The bellows are free of any cracks or pinholes. They still have a nice gloss to them. The shutter fires accurately to the ear on all speeds. And the focus turns very smoothly and freely.

    These are great cameras. I use two of them regularly. Solinar lens is very good. They are achieving high prices on eBay, when they come up, so $200 would appear to be a very good deal for someone lucky enough to live on your side of the Atlantic.

    That's a pretty camera. And a good price. I hope someone grabs this soon.
