EDIT: Everything has sold.


I am selling:

  • Chrome Cosina Voigtlander 50mm f/1.5 lens (includes front cap, rear cap, and hood). No box or papers.
  • Black Cosina Voigtlander Bessa R3A (includes generic body cap). No box, papers, film, or strap.
  • M39 (Leica screw mount) to Leica M adapter (includes generic Leica M mount rear cap)
  • M39 (Leica screw mount) to Micro Four Thirds adapter (includes generic MFT mount rear cap)
All items are in very good user condition. The lens has internal dust (no effect on photos) and the aperture ring turns easier than I would like (not a defect, just fyi). The Bessa has minor cosmetic flaws as well. None of this is collector stuff, but it all looks and works great.

Everything was purchased used except the M39 to MFT adapter, which I bought on Ebay from jinfinance. It is a recent version adapter and works perfectly.

Prices include insured domestic USPS shipping and PayPal fees. PayPal only. No trades please. My feedback is at FredMiranda and Ebay, both under the name "asabet".

  • Nokton and either adapter: $300
  • Nokton and both adapters: $325
  • Bessa alone: $425
  • Bessa, Nokton, and either adapter: $700
  • Bessa, Nokton, and both adapters: $725
Here are three full-res samples using the Nokton on my MFT cameras. The first two are at f/1.5, and the third at f/2.8 (I think):

GREAT LENS! I’m sure whoever buys this will be thrilled. Mine is about as sharp and contrasty as my Zeiss Planars—images have a 3d quality from my GF1, which I haven’t been used to getting with digital.

Great lens indeed. (I have its black brother.)

Great camera too. If readers have forgotten which is which: This is the one with automatic, electronic shutter, and as you can see from a switch on the top the largest framelines are for 40mm, reason being that the finder has 1x magnification ratio. Which in turn means that you can look through both eyes at the same time and that focusing is easy. The fact that you can look through both eyes at the same time means that if you do so then with a little practice you can use the camera with a 35mm lens and pretty much visualize the framelines.

Thanks guys. I think the Nokton 50/1.5 and R3A are a great combo indeed. The R3A is an awesome camera to use with 50s due to the 1:1 finder.

Nokton and 2 adapters have been sold, paid for, and are going to ship today if I can make it to the post office on time!

Bessa R3A is available, and I am open to offers.
