Nicca IIIs body + Nikkor f2 50mm ltm lens, case. Here is a very nice camera operating flawlessly and ready for a new owner to make some great pics with her. The camera was sent to Youxin Ye for service in November,’15. Here’s what he had to say. Nicca IIIs body – CLA’d, cleaned and lubricated mechanical parts, replaced hardened and rotten curtains to new. Shutter works well at all speeds now. Camera winding is smooth, shutter sounds snappy now. Cleaned both finders, both finders are clean and clear now. Nikkor 50/2.0 lens – CLA’d, cleaned and lubricated focus ring, focus is smooth. Cleaned aperture blades removed oil on blades. Optically the lens is clean and clear now, with some cleaning marks on the surface of front element caused by past use, should not affect photo image quality. I ran 2 rolls of film through and they came out looking great. I have not taken it out since then– it was my stab at the Barnack-style rangefinder and I find I need the later cameras with bigger viewfinders. Age and glasses take their toll. There is a small ding on the baseplate that you can see in the pics, also there is a very slight ding in the filter ring of the lens– you can just see it in the photos of you look carefully, and a small amount of brassing next to the rewind knob. None of these things impact the use of the camera in any way. The item “Nicca Type III S camera with Nikkor f2 50mm (CLA’d), case” is in sale since Tuesday, June 13, 2017.
