    For sale a Zeiss Ikon Vitessa LKE 35mm rangefinder with hard shell case and leather neck strap. Has a 50mm f2.8 fixed Tessar lens that is pretty sharp when it's stopped down (note that this is NOT a folder) and a Prontor shutter with max speed of 1/500th; coupled lightmeter that you would be silly to trust and a rangefinder that is accurate vertically but a little off horizontally. Speeds are accurate, and glass is in excellent condition; there is a social security number scratch into the bottom plate of the camera, but otherwise it looks great.

    A nice small camera that is ideal for street photography in black and white, which was why I bought it -- but I only ran a couple of rolls of film through it before I bought something else, and it has been in the closet for more than a year (which explains why I am selling it).

    $45 + $11 Priority Flat Rate to anywhere in the US = $56 total

    PM me for PayPal info; note that the lousy picture does not do the camera justice -- it has a nice chrome finish.

    Looks like my Contessa LKE. Export name maybe?
