    Bessa R2A + rapid winder + lenses (Australia)

    Voigtlander Bessa R2A Body (Gray) – Serial #0007298
    -With original box
    -With Body cap and strap
    -With original manual, Australian warranty card, and local receipt for purchase
    Works perfectly, the usual body scuffs and scratches. Fresh batteries. Has worked without missing a beat for 2 years. A wonderful camera.

    Rapid winder – Serial #00000658
    -The previous owner scuffed the Voigtlander logo off of the front, presumably so as not to attract attention?
    Works perfectly. Really really fun to use, the extra grip helps aid camera stability, and the extra strap lugs means it can be hung around your neck vertically.

    Jupiter 3, 50mm f/1.5 lens – Serial #730776
    -Chrome finish
    -Front and back caps
    -Plastic lens case
    -M39 to Leica M Adapter
    I'm well aware these are perfectly common on eBay, but how many of those are actually good examples, and will even couple with your rangefinder properly? I've used this one, shot it wide open, and it focuses accurately. I've had lovely results. I used to use it when I went to the pub with friends, HP5+ at 1600EI, when I needed a bit more speed over my old Canon 50/1.8.
    Slightly stiff focus at points, but nothing that's ever inhibited me. Get the helical relubricated with your local guy if it bothers you.

    Jupiter 9, 85mm f/2.0 lens – Serial #7702579
    -Black finish
    -Front and back caps
    -Plastic lens case
    -M39 to Leica M Adapter
    A fast portrait lens! Use the 90mm framelines on the Bessa and shoot away. Again, couples to the rangefinder properly and gives good results. It's even quite nice in colour.
    Again slightly stiff focus at points, it must be the russian grease.

    Extras:
    -3 rolls of film to get you started
    -40.5>52mm filter step up ring
    -49>52mm filter step up ring

    This is my favorite kit. I used to have a Voigtlander 35/1.7 as well but I barely ever used it, it got sold a while ago. I know people are skeptical of Russian rangefinder lenses, but I've used both of these examples and found them more than satisfactory. The body is in good condition considering all the weird places I dragged it. Your usual scuffs but nothing functionally wrong with the camera.

    Reason for sale? I need to finance my final semester of art school and the expenses involved in making work for a graduate exhibition. I'm moving back to a Nikon FM2n.

    $720AUD including Australia wide postage, for everything. Bank transfer preferred. PM me with questions or comments. Happy to mail internationally if you're interested.

    Without the FSU lenses I'd take $600AUD. The current price for a R2A + Rapid Winder new, from Mainline Photo, would be $1,240AUD...

    I'll take that on the Jupiter 9, $75+postage is reasonable, and actually not too painfully below what I paid for it originally. PM me with your address and we'll hash it out.

    EDIT, for new pricing:

    R2A+Trigger Winder: $560 inc. postage
    Jupiter 3, 50/1.5: $95+postage

    Oh good. That Jupiter 3 was tempting though I'm already over budget this month.

    SOLD! To a very polite chap in Sydney.
    Thanks for all the interest, I'll probably have more stuff up for sale in the next week.
