Description:

Wanted to let folks know my Canon 7 WITH the f0.95 "miracle lens" is, regretfully, up for sale.

I have been a long time member here and used to run the Print Swap exchanges we used to have here. So this isn't some bozo with one post trying to scam anyone.

I am enclosing photos. The condition of the camera is excellent plus. Metalwork in perfect shape, no scrapes or scratches, as is the original grip surface. A really, REALLY nice example.

The lens is the real Canon f0.95, not the TV lens being foisted off on eBay and other places.

The lens optics are perfect. Not a scratch. However, the indexing pin is missing, and was missing when I bought the lens. It still fits the camera and has no problem mounting, but you just need to keep the barrel aligned manually.

I have not been able to use the camera in years, health and other reasons.

What it needs to be perfect? A CLA, the pin replaced, and some film.

If you don't know what CLA means, don't even think about buying a camera of this vintage with any intent to use it. I WAS using it until it was put away and of course, the lube has stiffened a bit in the lens. It still focuses perfectly, just a bit stiff. And as stated, needs a CLA to be spot on.

An example like this doesn't come up every day.

Tom, I've been a Noctilux user for many years and not familiar with the nuances of the Cannon f/0.95 versions. Please excuse my ignorance but what is the difference between the real Canon 50/0.95 and the (inferior?) TV version?


Pete.

TV version isn't rangefinder coupled.

Canon 0.95 TV version cannot be used on Canon 7 series for sure. But once you get the lens converted into Leica M-mount, it can be used on any of the Leica rangefinder cameras and it is RF coupled. The TV version Canon 0.95 has the complete round rear glass which looks more lovely in my opinion. Currently, the market value for TV versions is higher than the regular version.

The TV version is not RF coupled as delivered from Canon. That is why it has the complete rear element. The trimmed glass on the Canon 7 version is to make room for the RF cam that was standard on the lens. You can see the cam here as part of converting it to M mount. http://www.benhall.com/project/canon-7-50mm-f0-95-the-dream-lens-conversion/


TV lenses can be converted to RF mount with RF coupling. See: http://www.baldmtn.com/canon95M.htm for example but my understanding is that mounting/removing the lens requires extra steps due to how the cam was kludged into place instead of how it was done by Canon.
