    Olympus 35SP rangefinder. One of Olympus' premier rangefinders, in fact and a treat to use! Has a small ding or two and evidence on bottom plate of having been carried in the wrong case (screw rubbed the chrome off). Missing the shutter button collar, but this doesn't affect the use of the camera at all and could be replaced by a clever owner. Meter works, note: spotmeter works, lens (42mm 1:1.7) is bright and clean (actually one of the best I've ever seen), viewfinder is nice and rangefinder patch is bright, action is nice, shutter is also nice. Focus is smooth, easy and quick. Works fine at all speeds (1/1 through 1/500) and so does the aperture. Please remind me and I will re-seal it before sending. $55 plus actual shipping cost.

    PayPal ok for international buyers but cash, check or money order for domestic buyers please.

    If questions, please ask.

    I'll take it if it is still availible.

    If you are still selling light seal kits let me know - I need a few (I'll check which specifically once I'm home).

    Thanks Brian,
    You're the first person to respond, so it is yours. Yes...still selling the kits. When you're at home, please let me know what is needed. If you'll PM your address, I'll get this ready to mail and Monday we'll know the shipping cost.

    That is a fantastic buy. My mom had one of these for about four decades until she dropped it in some muddy water and it was beyond repair. This was the first real camera I used, the light meter broke about 15 years ago, but because it reads in EV, I was quite good at guessing exposure by then and used it for quite a while without any meter. Fantastic lens, quality i couldn't match with my first slr back in the day.

    I agree entirely...another camera I hate to part with, but nobody said this downsizing stuff would be fun.
