    Gotta get rid of some of this stuff. So, first up:

    Ricoh 500 - a 35mm CRF. This is the one with the quick focusing knobs on the lens mount and a pivoting trigger advance on the bottom - the 1957 model with the flat top. Camera is in excellent condition, a few minor scratches, but, for its age, remarkably clean. Everything appears to work flawlessly. Although I have not run any film through this in over three years, I remember it as sharp with an excellent coupled rangefinder. The lens is an f2.8/45mm Riken Ricoh in a Seikosha MX shutter B, 1-500. Camera has serial number 5851 and lens is number 17578.

    $50 shipped anywhere in the US. Outside US, PM me for shipping costs.
