    Email or P M me for pics...
    These lenses are quite sought after by the NEX & 4/3 mirror less crowd (lumix owners too)
    As a ready-to-use "I shoot film" kit, this is unbeatable value.

    This is the camera system that was chosen over the Nikon F by the U.S. Navy, back in the day. It features interchangeable prisms, a metal (not cloth) shutter, advanced behind the mirror meter system, and superb optics. This kit includes:

    Super D chrome body with prism finder in very good condition
    Original snap-on case
    Original
    Tokyo Kogaku RE.Auto-Topcor 58mm f1.4 in gorgeous condition
    Tokyo Kogaku RE.Auto-Topcor 35mm f2.8 in gorgeous condition
    Topcon waist level finder (like new in original zippered case)

    Individually these items would bring a lot more, but for expediency I will accept $289 for the kit, plus actual shipping.

    I apologize, I have 4 people that I thought I had sent pics to, but they did not receive them. A bit limited on options at the moment, but will see if I can get them up on Flickr or sumpin'.

    EDIT: 5 images in my photo stream starting here

    EDIT 2: I've just discovered that the 58mm f1.4 has oily blades (causes enough resistance that it does not spring back.) Apparently, this is a common problem on this lens, but it will need some TLC unless you want to shoot wide open or in stopped down mode. :/
    I would take $200 plus shipping for the kit in this newly discovered condition.

    The photos do show an excellent condition camera, but I really want a 58 f/1.4 without oily aperture blades...it really doesn't benefit me if I don't net that one item from the transaction. Too bad.
