    Ansco Super Speedex: It's in nice shape all around, very nice cosmetics...great glass, shutter speeds all sound on. However, it does appear the focus is stuck right now. That is, the ring simply doesn't turn. Now it's possible I don't know what I'm doing, but it appears gummed up.

    Voightlander Bessa II. Great 6x9 folder. Has the original leather case, so the overall cosmetics are very good, expect that it has some wear on the top plate where the case didn't cover it. Glass is nice and clear and shutter sounds accurate at all speeds. Ready to be taken out and used!

    What I'm looking for? Well, ideally it would be any number of interesting Nikon MF gear. That could be a PC lens, or a 85/1.4, 135/2, wideangles 20mm and below, 24/2, or any other interesting bodies or lenses...I'll consider it all.

    Thanks!

    Brad

    Brad,

    Just for shits and giggles. What would you be asking for the Bessa II?

    This is the folder model with the coupled rangefinder and the color skopar lens?

    FWIW, the Super arrived a couple days ago, well-packed and in great condition. Brad's a stand-up guy to deal with.

    The Bessa II has a Color Skopar on it with a Compur Rapid shutter. Both in great shape and the shutter speeds are great!

    As I said...looking for any interesting Nikon glass (I'd love a 105mm 1.8), but I'd sell it outright too.
