NIKON SP Rangefinder Camera with Standard Lens EXCELLENT+
The Nikon SP Rangefinder Camera is one of the finest camera designs ever produced. It was the engineering platform on which the famous Nikon F SLR camera was built, which is still regarded as the finest professional SLR camera ever built. The design innovations of the Nikon SP are too numerous to fully explore, and many of them still remain even today. This sale includes the SP body and the Nikkor-S 5cm f/1.4 standard lens. The camera body is nearly perfect, having only a very small area around the synchronization socket that appears to be some kind of silver-white substance – perhaps removable. The body covering is beautiful, both in appearance and application.. The critical metal top plate and bottom cover have only the faintest hints of usage. The rangefinder system presents a clear and sharp image but has not been tested for calibration. The shutter works at all speeds and sounds incrementally accurate when starting at the 1s speed (which measures accurately with a stopwatch) and going step-by-step up to the highest speed of 1/1000s. The shutter curtains appear to be in excellent condition, and function perfectly. The camera bears s/n 6201073, making it the 1,073rd camera produced, an extremely early unit of hard-to-find quality. The lens optics are clean and bright with no fungal growth or scratches I can see. The lens settings are smooth and precise. The housing is in excellent condition with very little evidence of use. This is an exceptional example of this famous camera – there are not many of this quality to be found. The original front lens cap is included.
