    FS Sekonic L-28 c2

    This is the Classic Sekonic L28 c2 meter.
    it was NOS (New/Old Stock) when i bought it.
    works perfectly

    first photo shows the previous person removed serial number.

    includes
    BOX ( a little worn )
    HARD CASE
    HIGH MASK
    LUMISPHERE
    GRID
    FLAT DISK


    I lost my meter and after looking for 7 months bought this and found the lost one just as I was putting this away.

    it is kind of funny how that happens, isn't it ?

    asking : $113 includes shipping CONNUS ( what i paid )

    outside of CONNUS $105+ shipping

    RETURN POLICY

    seeing there are issues with the serial number being etched off by sekonic(?) ..
    if the meter does not work when it arrives, i will be happy to
    return the $ and postage and having the buyer send me back the meter.

    He probably obscured the serial in photoshop so someone won't try to claim he stole it. There are scammers who have tried that on people selling photo gear online...the sellers legitimately owned the gear but someone tried to 'steal' it by claiming it was theirs ...look i have the serial number so it must be mine!

    not sure why the serial number was etched off
    the guy who sold it to me shrugged his shoulders too ..
    i bought it from someone who had a few of them
    and he was selling them out of his vintage electronics + antique store in IN.
    i have my receipt if it is needed ...


    i wish i needed another light meter eric,
    i have 4 of them ( MR, luna pro sbc, minolta flash meter and a sekonic )
    and don't use any of them.

    I bought one of this guys meters. I didn't know the serial numbers had been removed until I received it but upon reading the WHOLE ebay ad it did indeed say that Sekonic had removed the serial numbers because they were introducing a new model and didn't want to honor any warranties on the old model. Apparently the seller bought a large qty. of them. The seller is "reliablevintage" on ebay and he always has one up for auction. The seller did offer to take the meter back and pay all postage but I went ahead and kept it.

    yes changeling1, that is the guy.

    the serial number wasn't an issue for me

    someone buys light meter does not work when it is received.

    I was just pulling your leg. The lack of serial number wouldn't bother me.

    This, and those like it (There have been innumerable variations since it came out 60 years ago.), is perhaps the best all-around light meter ever made, IMHO (especially when used with a set of hi-slides). Someone should grab it from John.

    I hear light meters are a hot commodity on the black market, so I bet they're pinched.

    ...just kidding. But even if they are stolen, the owner has probably been dead for 14 years and the police report is probably filed away too deep to reach with a fishing rod. Or maybe it was just an artistic expression.
