Got a CL body at a camera show/swap..now I'm looking for a 28mm for it
I regularly buy old rangefinders and guesstimators working or not to stick in my bookcase..I like the desgn and look of them. I started with Italian made and quickly obtained all the cheap ones.. then moved on..last ones I got was an Aires and a Konica
From Craigslist for $60.00-- a Canon IIF2 with Canon 35/2.8 and Flash Unit Y.
This is apparently the least common of Canon LTM rangefinders--only about 2,500 made. The body and lens are in excellent condition, save for a couple of small spots of surface rust on the body and a light ding above the rangefinder window.
The rangefinder works perfectly and is very clear--I have to say that I like it better than my IIIG's rangefinder. Shutter speeds sound good--even the slower ones (I'm sure they're off, but at least they're not waaay off or sticking.)
I found a Swallow brand 35mm finder, a 34mm Series VI adapter, and a Series VI rangefinder hood in my spare parts stash. I knew there was a reason I was saving all the Series junk I've accumulated!
