Lovely vintage Konica rangefinder camera. This beauty has a fixed 45mm f/1.8 lens with a large, sharp viewfinder. It uses the "swatch" style rangefinder mechanism, and the alignment of focus target is clear and accurate. Beautiful condition with only slight scuffs here and there. Small amount of light green dots that might be corrosion near shutter button (see image below), but they are really dots and not anything substantial. Shutter and aperture in good working order. Timer (for self portraits, etc.) is either non-functional or semi-reliable at best.

I have walked up and down the shutter speeds, and they are accurate for consistent exposure. Lens has no scratches or significant blemishes. Film chamber is light tight (see sample images shot from camera below). Lens is sharp wide open and has pleasing bokeh. Selling for father-in-law, who has been camera's sole owner.

Comes with original leather half case, in good but not perfect condition...some blemishes on the leather.

Included:
Konica Auto S2
Front lens cap
Half case with flap

Great deal on a great camera and an excellent entry into rangefinders.

Beautiful classic in great condition. Minor wear on the leather, but the camera still works and bellows is light tight. Calling it an 8 on condition, but it is probably better than that. Best guess is that it is vintage 1920s or 30s. We should all dream of looking this good after 70-80 years.

Camera is still light light. I found a roll of film in it from at least 60 years ago and had it developed. The film emulsion had turned to dust in parts, but the images still were on there. WOW!

It also comes with original leather pouch/case. The pouch/case has dry leather than forms some dust when bent around (no leather dust in/on camera...they were stored separately). I have not massaged in leather cream, because some people might like the authentic dry Indiana Jones look, but that would fix up the leather.

True classic.

Lovely Weston Master III light meter. Beautiful condition. No idea if it works, because I have never used a light meter before (new or old). Sold as is. Consider it a lovely pocket watch...for your camera.

Thank you. Some real time traveling treasures. If I weren't so busy I would keep them all. I just don't have time and need to let some one else enjoy them.
