Canon P rangefinder

[IMG][/IMG]

Canon "P" Range Finder with 50mmf1.4 interchangeable lens. Late fifties. Very solid well made camera

I was given this, and it is in good condition. The titanium shutter is less wrinkled than most I have seen. The only fault is that when the self timer runs down, it doesn't fire the shutter.

This is good advice and applies to many other vintage cameras as well.

I pretend my Canon P is the Leica M2 I never got.

Ha Ha, nice one, yes there are similarities, the P is not cheap, around the AU$600 mark on eBay, having said that the M2 is around AU$5000-6000
