Original 1950s Canon body, lens and metal lens cap.
BODY — So pretty, and rare; only 2625 made! This IIF2 body is in near-mint condition. U.S. military Exchange Post “EP” model; serial number 190596. It has its original film take-up spool, and its original leather strap. Operational checks: Speed settings (accurate to ear), Film counter advances, ASA Film Speed dial is settable. Lever below the rewind knob operates the optical viewfinder magnification that covers 50mm (F), 100mm (1x), and 135mm (1.5x) lenses, Rangefinder function appears accurate (tape measure check correlates with markings on the lens barrel.) Be sure to watch the VIDEO; shutter clicks begin at 1:30
This camera shows few signs of ever being used and has likely never in its long life been disassembled, so if you plan to use this camera (rather than just display it) expect to first send it to a qualified technician for CLA.
LENS — Canon 50mm f1.8, serial number 145909, with original Canon metal push-on front lens cap. Focus mechanism and aperture diaphragm are both smooth, built-in infinity focus lock. Outer elements look fine, possible anomaly or degradation on one of the inner elements, please carefully study the photos.
