Looks like a nice repaint job, did you do it yourself or was it done by a professional?


Hopefully three images is OK for one post:

Canon V-T
Canon 50mm f/1.5 w/original hood

I need to do a shoot out with the Summarit 1.5, J-8, Canon 1.2/1.4/1.5/1.8 series that I have collected and trim it down to 2, maybe 3 lenses max. Spending too much time dusting off gear and not enough shooting/printing/developing so a house cleaning is in order.

My Canon Rangefinders

'When I wake up and walk in my study I always feel a great sadness.. I don't own any of those nice late Canon Rangefinders or lenses...'

Said someone else entirely - but not me


Upper left to right: VI-L (ep) with 50 f1.2 (ep) and meter / 7sZ with 50 0.95 / VI-T in camera holder with 50 f1.4, Auto-up 450, zoomfinder s and Parallax Compensator III / P with 28 f2.8, turret zoomfinder with 21-28 attachment and Flash Unit Coupler

Mid left to right: 85 f1.8 / 7sZ with FL 19 f3.5, Mount Converter B and 19 mm finder / 100 f2 / 7 with 100 f3.5, Accessory Coupler and Universal Finder / 135 f3.5

Lower left to right: 25 f3.5 / 28 f3.5 / 35 f1.5 / 35 f2 / 50 f1.8 / 50 f1.5

What can I say.. I am a happy Canon RF camper at the moment

And for sake of a clean picture I am not showing the plethora of original Canon RF cases, (all) black finders, hoods, caps, filters, auto-ups, flashes and other accessories I own. Everything works like it should and is ready for use.

I used to own an unusual Canon 7: a black repaint with the meter removed. The hole where the selenium cell had been was pretty smoothly patched. I'm sure I sold it to somebody on here: any of you still have it?

I didn't fully appreciate my Canon P until I used a Kiev rangefinder. The viewfinder on the P is really bright and big in comparison and so much easier to use....although a lot easier to knock out of sync as well!

Well, this seems to be the season for purchasing Canon Ps if the previous several posts are any indication. Geez, I knew it was popular back in the day -- and it sure seems to have retained that popularity. At least here at the Rangefinder Forum.

OK, so here's mine. I received it about a week ago and I'm currently running a first roll of film through it. It came in a nice, sturdy leather case that has the bump for the P's meter, which I'm thinking about getting. I bought just the body. The lens I have mounted on it came from my Canon IIIa. It's a very sharp lens, so I don't have much of a felt need to buy one that is more contemporary to this camera.

Please take a look at the third photo. I've seen a lot of Ps over the years, and every single one had a crinkled shutter. This is the first P I've ever seen with an unwrinkled shutter. I bought it from a Japanese seller on eBay. It was being offered as an open auction rather than the typical buy-it-now pricing, and I wound up getting it for an excellent price: $71. $99 shipped from Japan.

It's taken me a while to get this kit together, but I think it's pretty much set at this point. L to R:

<EP> marked L1 w/ Serenar 50/1.9 (w/ six-digit serial number!)
<EP> marked Canon 100/3.5
<EP> marked Serenar 35/2.8
P w/ <EP> marked Canon 50/1.5

I regularly use non-Canon lenses on these bodies, and the Canon lenses on other bodies, but I figured I'd keep the group pure for this forum.

Canon IVF with Serenar 50/1.8 and original box. Currently being ignored in the RFF classifieds. Sigh. I may just be forced to keep this beautiful camera.

Glad to see this thread still has legs! I love my Canon rangefinder, I use it as often as I can.

I'm slowly accumulating a collection of Canon glass. Here's my Canon 7 with the 50/1.4 'Japanese Summilux'.

Well that’s interesting, a six-digit L1. Wonder what the story is on that? Another Canon L1 mystery, I guess.

Sorry, my syntax was ambiguous; it's the Serenar 50/1.9 that has the six-digit serial, not the L1. According to Peter Kitchingman's site, the extra digit makes it rather rare. I started a thread on it here: http://www.rangefinderforum.com/foru...d.php?t=145402

My mistake, I misread your post.

But I see that you and I exchanged comments on this lens back in 2014. Cool. I remember the thread.

Surely eBay can very quickly address the situation? Nothing like helping a friend find happiness.

That is quite a sizeable collection! With many rare accessories too! I bet you must have spent quite some time putting them together. Thanks for sharing.

Great posts in this thread -- so interesting to see different Canon variants.

@mabelsound, that black re-paint looks really great.

My VT has a very similar ding in the bottom plate, maybe related to how users hold the camera when using it with the trigger?

Nice set Jim!

May I know if that's is the auto parallax correction view finder on the L1? I thought these were great but sadly, they are not the most popular.

Here is my newly acquired Canon P with the 35mm f/2 lens with a Fotasy filter and lens hood (check your favorite auction site for 40mm filter and lens hood) and 50mm f/1.4 lens with contemporary cap and filter.

The hood was made by a company Mansfield Industries in Chicago as part of the "Raydex Optical Filter Kit" in the late '40's, similar to the Kodak Series. It was sold in a kit with six drop-in filters (Yellow, type A, Red, Green, Blue and Haze). It will fit the Elmar (and clones), as well as the Argus Cintar on the C3 (excluding the Matchmatic).

Mansfield later bought Argus, and also produced several cameras under its own name, the Mansfield Skylark probably being the most notable.
