Canon VL2 35mm Japanese Rangefinder Camera + Industar-26M 2.8/52mm Lens
The Canon VL and VL2 were introduced at the beginning of 1958, and their production was limited to that year. These models were the first with Canon’s new metal foil shutter curtain. The metal foil would avoid the potential curtain holes when the rangefinder was left. Ens-up in the sun, with the sun’s rays focused on the curtain. Introduced also in January 1958 was the Canon VL2. This camera was basically the same as the Canon VL, but was the economy version. It lacked the top speed of 1/1000 second of the VL. This was primarily a marketing decision, since the shutters of the two cameras were identical. The viewfinders and shutters of these cameras proved very reliable over the years. In very good used condition! EVERYTHING in Working Order, but.. The finder / rangefinder inner elements show partial silvering. So the images on the 35 and 50mm freme-lines are not as bright as intended. The rangefinder setting is totally clean and clear and the patch well defined! Magnification selector works flawlessly! Included is decent condition (excellent glasses) Soviet Industar-26M 52mm F2.8 lens. Other lenses are listed separately, this is for the camera body ONLY! I shall also have EVR cases, so if you need one, please let me know. Thank you for visiting!
