    In order to finance further ventures into LF, my RF kit has to go.

    Cosina Voigtlander Bessa R2A

    Aperture priority rangefinder with framelines selectable for 35mm, 50mm & 90mm, B-1/2000s shutter.

    Smooth film transport, nice weight and size in the hand.

    A lovely lovely camera, in very good condition indeed - any marks you can see on the photos of the body are likely dustbunnies, but as a used camera, it does bear some very minor cosmetic marks.

    Original packaging.

    Two issues to note, neither of which have bothered me in the slightest in use: first, the screw-in cover on the viewfinder eyepiece has lost its rubber. Nikon F2/F3 type vf rings are a direct replacement if you want to change diopter; Second, there is what appears to be a small hair in the RF patch. It does not affect the accuracy of the RF in any way, but it might irritate an owner with more delicate sensibilities than mine.

    Included in the sale are a nice Gordy strap (broken in to a comfortable softness), and a Mr. Zhou black leather half-case with contrast red stitching.

    This nice little package of goodies can be yours for £350

    Price includes shipping within the UK and PayPal fees.

    I will consider shipping within the EU but at additional cost, which may prove to be prohibitive.
    US/RoW - you can ask, but again tracked and insured shipping may be prohibitive to potential buyers.

    I have 100% +ve feedback at eBay (username paitch177) as both buyer and seller. I would prefer to sell to a UK TPL user, but I reserve the right to refuse an offer to buy if the user has no significant posting history here.
