SOLD -Vintage Olympus 35SPn, overhauled and ready for action

Will Ship To: Global

Hey guys.

I know I'm going to regret this, but I'm putting my Olympus 35SPn camera up for sale. It's a mid-60's rangefinder, takes 35mm film, has Zuiko 42mm f1.7 optics. The SPn model is apparently rarer improved model of the original SP, according to this website.

This particular item has had three owners, some old lady who took the occasional candid shots, a pro photographer who kept it shelved for 10+ years, then me. I sent it for a full overhaul at Camtech in NY, the North American Olympus experts, where the meter was recalibrated, mechanicals were cleaned and lubed, and battery converted to silver cell.

The camera is in tip-top working condition. Meters great, advance and rewind are smooth, although I haven't tested it much in manual. All rings still click, focus is smooth. Glass is clean, free of scratches, fungi, hazing and whatnot. I ran a couple of rolls of color film through it, there are a couple of example shots on my Flickr account.

Aesthetically, there are some signs of corrosion that are normal for a camera that's going on 50 years of age, none of the corrosion affects functionality. The advance lever is missing it's plastic trim, which dried up and cracked to the point where it separated during normal use.

Here are some full-sized pics. Careful, they are huge.

I want to get 150$ USD / CAD shipped to Canada / Continental US for this. The Camtech overhaul is 100$ on it's own, with shipping one way it turns out to be around 120$. Buying this is cheaper than playing the ebay lottery trying to find a good core and overhauling it.

International shipping is OK by me, just shoot me a PM.

As always, I'm open to offers, money talks.


SOLD
