For Sale: Canon VT Deluxe M (VTDM) with 50mm F1.2 LTM and leather case
For consideration is a Canon Rangefinder set, VT Deluxe M body with Canon 50mm f1.2 LTM lens.
Rangefinder body is the Canon VT Deluxe M, which is the last and rarest version of the VT Deluxe series. Quoting cameraquest.com, only 2550 of these camera were made.
"Canon VT Deluxe VTDM 1958 cold silver RF image, stainless steel shutter, 2,550 produced"
The VTDM has a bottom mounted Leicavit inspired trigger for film advance, a shutter speed from T,B, 1sec to 1/1000sec.
VT Deluxe has a few desirable functions. From cameraquest.com,
"One of the VT's biggest advantages was its 3 position viewfinder with three rotating prisms giving it three different viewfinder magnifications. The photog could use it to select the 50, 35, or "RF" finders as indicated on the top plate above the finder. Here it is set to the 35 finder. The "RF" position is roughly equal to a 135. "
"The crowning glory of the VT, at least as far as I am concerned, is in the accessory shoe. To the left is a little ball at the top of the accessory shoe. This is for the VT's AUTOMATIC parallax correction finders."
Camera for sale has <E.P> mark which signifies it was sold to US personals in Japan back then.
Camera is in fully functional condition and extremely good cosmetic condition. Rangefinder is accurate and shutter speed on. Shutter curtain is slightly wrinkled but works as intended.
The Canon lens is in good condition with some circular cleaning marks from previous cleaning. I'm unable to reproduce the cleaning marks in photos, however the cleaning marks will not show in pictures. Glass is clean with no fungus, haze, etc. A lens cap is included.
Antique and Classic Cameras
Also included in the package is the original canon leather case in good condition for its age.
Looking at $900USD inclusive of paypal and worldwide shipping.
