    Tower 22/Takumar 58mm f2.8/Kyoei Optical 135mm f3.5

    Continuing to thin down my collection to the cameras I use the most. From everything I have researched and read, this camera is an Asahiflex IIa, stamped “Tower 22” for distribution by Sears in the late 1950‘s.

    (See this article for a good overview:http://www.concentric.net/~sherfy/spec12.html

    This is a very good condition example of the camera. Body CLA‘d and lenses cleaned by Havel Camera in San Antonio just less than a year ago. (Receipt for that work included) Speeds are dead-on.

    Lenses are gorgeous 37mm screw mounts with the Kyoei Optical being the rarer of the two. Technicians that serviced this lens couldn’t say enough about how well it measured in performance tests.

    $275.00 for the kit. I don't want to part it out. Pricing is based upon what I spent on the CLA and the modest investment I made buying the camera and lenses initially. I’m not trying to make a profit. Price includes insured shipping and tracking to destinations in the lower 48 states. I’m happy to ship to most other locations but will need to adjust asking price for the additional shipping costs. We can work that out together. Pay Pal for payment please.

    I have made multiple transactions through the classifieds here over the years. My ID on the “big auction” is the same if you would like to see my feedback rating.

    Thanks for looking and giving it some thought!
