    This is a Konica II rangefinder, along with a nice assortment of accessories:
    1) fitted case for camera w/o thumbscrew;
    2) Sekonic selenium meter suitable for mounting in the camera’s top cold-shoe (with fitted case);
    3) auxiliary wide-angle and telephoto lenses (with fitted case);
    4) close-up adapter;
    5) lens-hood;
    6) filter set;
    7) flash terminal adapter.

    I have run a couple of films through the camera, with the lens-hood mounted. I have not used the auxiliary lenses or the close-up adapter or any of the filters.

    The Sekonik meter responds to light, but I have not checked it for accuracy.

    All the cases fit well, but the camera case is showing some wear.

    Cosmetically, the camera, auxiliary lenses, meter and close-up accessory are excellent. The filters are a bit dirty/dusty and the case for the filters is brittle and held together by tape.

    The camera appears to function correctly, although I expect it has been unused for some time because the controls are slightly stiff. I expect that a CLA would be a good idea. I haven’t tried it with flash, but the aperture appears to adjust appropriately, and the shutter speeds look okay (I don’t have testing equipment). The film compartment is in excellent condition, and the film transport works smoothly.

    Based on the limited information I have been able to find, I think $180.00 USD. is a fair price for this full kit, but I won’t say no to offers.

    I take PayPal and will pay the fees. Shipping (I’m in Canada) will be the responsibility of the buyer, but I need to insist on a method that permits tracking.

    Here are some photos. I have other views as well. I also attach a shot from one of my test rolls. If you have any questions, send me an APUG Private Message (“pm”)

    If you still have this after I successfully move, expect a message from me.

    Geez. I can't believe nobody else wants this. It's gorgeous. See? Konica is the Rodney Dangerfield of photography.

    No respect.

    It's gonna be a while before I can even begin to consider this. I just spent $200 on a Koni-Omega (finally won one!) and still have to buy a 120 back for it. Not to mention pray that the rangefinder is working (ebay. need I say more?). Plus I have to buy chemicals. I just barely managed to dodge the bullet with the girlfriend (I think the fact that I told her about it while she was playing with her new sewing machine helped).

    It's gonna be months before I can consider another big camera purchase. I don't think I'll be spending more than $20 each for cameras for a bit.

    Off to the flea market!

    Thanks though. I'll keep an eye on this thread. If it's still open when I have the money, I'll send you a PM.

    This kit has been sold and has made it's way half way around the world to the buyer (who seems to be happy :smile:).

    APUG has my donation.

    So, this thread is closed.

    Thanks all.
