    Epson R-D1 Kit - 12D and 21D VF and Bridge Grip

    I have a very nice R-D1 Kit with some desirable accessories. This camera works great, the RF is in good alignment and there is a little wear on the edges of the body. The photos show the wear (and really make it look a lot worse than it is).

    I am selling this because I just rarely use it and I have a digital Leica. I swore I would never sell this camera because the handling is just so great, but I am really used to the Leica now and it should go to someone who will use it more. I still love it, but the only thing that irritates me about the Epsons is the metering, which generally underexposes about a stop - especially indoors - anyone familiar with them will know what I mean.

    Here is what is included:

    1 - R-D1 which has been upgraded to R-D1s functionality (Version 2.0) and includes all of the luxurious packaging, Body Cap, Software, Manual, Strap, Charger and 3 Batteries (1 Epson, 2 aftermarket).

    2 - Voigtlander 12mm D Viewfinder - this was specially made for using the Voigtlander 12mm UltraWide lens on the R-D1. This retails for $250 at CameraQuest. This viewfinder is a 18mm equivalent on a full frame 35mm. It comes with the original Box.

    3 - Voigtlander 21mm D Viewfinder -again specially made for the R-D1 and the 21mm lenses. This VF is not available anywhere as far as I know, CameraQuest is out of stock. It sold for over $200 I believe and does not have the box.

    4 - Bridge Grip - a beautifully made grip that screws into the R-D1 tripod mount and acts as an arca-style quick release plate (see pic). Nicely made and comes with the original box. Note, this grip prevents changing the battery without removing the grip - see the picture, but some people have used a dremel to modify it. I just removed it when I needed to - takes a few seconds. These sold for around $125 I believe and I do not think they are currently available.



    I only want to sell as a complete kit at this point. I know some people may not have 12mm and 21mm lens for the viewfinders, but if not they should buy them - they are great! I am asking $1750/OBO for everything plus insured shipping to the US.

    Thanks.

    i'd take the grip if you should decide to split the kit.

    I won't sell anything unless the body goes first. I will consider offers on the body alone or with any combination of accessories. Then I'll sell the rest, probably.

    I do like it - and I am not extremely anxious to sell it, so we'll see what happens...

    Also, I should have noted that the LCD does not have any scratches on it -the pics show it with protective film over the screen.
