    Help identify Mamiya 35mm RF

    Can anyone help me identify this camera I picked up today. I've hunted around on the web and haven't seen anything that looks exactly the same. There are no markings on the body or case other than brand name and serial number.

    It is a Mamiya 35S or 35S2.

    Thank you very much! I'm thrilled to get this confirmation of the model.
    Now if I could just get the front group of the lens to come apart for cleaning...

    Please be careful, it looks like a nice little camera with a nice bright lens, so I would counsel waiting until you can get it cleaned professionally - To damage it at this age would be sad

    Well, I don't know how valuable it is. I paid $6 for it and while the rangefinder and linked focus work good, the film advance is good, the shutter and blades are good etc., the lens is rather moldy. The rear part came apart fairly easily and I was able to clean it up but it was surprisingly scratched up (just micro scratches but lots of them). I'l certainly try not to damage it but I'm not sure I'm going to spend much money for CLA either.

    How much you paid for it is not the point, it looks like a nice little camera, so I still urge care and respect for the elderly
