    I have a coworker who's boyfriend's Dad past away. The Dad used to own 4 newspapers in his days and had lots of camera equipment.
    They have decided to sell most of it and I'm helping my coworker doing that.




    I have listed the description, pictures. If you need anything else, please let me know and I'll do my best to let you know. All the equipment seems to work (I haven't used them but I have cleaned all the equipment and made sure all every buttons were working, also I was able to open all cameras to look if a film was there). The equipment was kept in a camera back and looks to be in a good condition.

    Describe the focusing screen it has. I'm curious.

    It's not a traditional focusing screen. The easiest way to describe it is you have a square in the middle with some line border on the edges of the view finder. In those sections it's like the image you see is duplicated but not aligned with the rest of the image. When you are in focus, the image in those sections and the rest of the image are aligned.

    Does that make any sense to you?

    yaeldefaye, it makes perfect sense, but this is commonly called a rangefinder. All Leica M2s have it. Good luck with the sale.

    What! You're not interested to buy it? Come on!
    Just kidding... except if you really want to buy it.

    Thanks to some information and help from Richard, I'm lowering the price of the kit to match a more real and attractive price.

    The new price is $1700.
