NIKON SP Rangefinder Camera with Standard Lens EXCELLENT+
The Nikon SP Rangefinder Camera is one of the finest rangefinder camera designs ever produced. The design innovations of the Nikon SP are too numerous to explore fully, but the proof of their excellence is seen in several generations of Nikon cameras that followed in which these innovations continued to be used. This sale includes the SP body and the Nikkor-S 5cm f/1.4 standard lens. The black enameled trim bordering the covering is nearless flawless. The body covering is original and in excellent condition. The metal trim is in excellent condition, with some minor discolorations on the edge of the top around the synchronization socket and a few other very minor signs 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 film advance lever operates smoothly and the spring return functions perfectly. This early camera bears s/n 6201073, making it the 1,073rd camera ever produced, not many were made before this example. 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 excellent example of this famous camera. A screw-on metal lens cap is supplied for protection.
