    Kodak Retina IIIc with Xenar 35mm lens

    Absolute jewel of a German camera. It is my favorite 35mm. But I simply have too many cameras and I'm only shooting MF and LF these days. The camera works great. There are rub marks here and there, but nothing out of the ordinary. The meter is operational and gives reasonable measurements. At least as good as one can expect from this kind of a meter. The shutter sounds accurate and the self timer works fine. The lens is deadly sharp. Included is the Xenar f5.6 35mm wide angle lens with a home-made resemblance of a viewfinder .

    $110 shipped in US.

    Thank god...

    I really, really wanted this, Eugene. Almost clicked you yesterday. But I want a new vacuum easel even more.

    Thanks for getting this sold so quickly.

    Ken,

    You should have PM'd me. I sold it to a buyer in Span. The shipping cost was outrageous and I'll be worrying sick about this camera until it arrives, because Retina's meter is rather delicate and does not like the throwing around they do with international packages. I could have driven to Seattle and back for less than I paid for shipping. Oh well, at least I have more space on my shelves now .

    Eugene.
