Voigtlander Prominent with35mm 3.5 Skoparon
This listing is for a 1956-57 Voigtlander Prominent Type 128 with a 35mm 3.5 Skoparon lens in fantastic condition. The Type 128 is a relatively rare transitional model between the more common type 127 (which is identifiable by it’s knob-wind advance, lack of cold shoe, and simple glass viewfinder) and the Type 130, more commonly known as the Promient II (with a very large bright-frame finder and revised top plate). The Type 128 Prominent has a cold-shoe built into the top plate, a small Albada finder with frame lines and double stroke lever wind film advance. In my humble opinion, this is the most beautiful model in the range, with a silvered albada finder, and lever wind, but without the over-sized finder in the Prominent II ruining the classic lines of the camera. Serial #69909 on the body. Cosmetics EX with minor marks in top-plate chrome. Minor paint loss on the black-painted portions around the back door. Please examine the pictures closely and ask questions. The photos with this listing are of the actual item for sale. The shutter works well. Slow speeds are about twice as long i. The collar for the cable release is missing (common issue on Prominent models). The focus and film advance are smooth operating. The viewfinder is clean and bright. The rangefinder works well and is fully aligned. The lens is clean and clear with typical minor dust from age. No visible haze, scratches or etching. Aperture blades move smoothly and easily, there is a bit of oil on the aperture blades. Includes leather everready case (decent condition, straps cut). All said, this camera has not serviced in my ownership, and should be examined with that in mind. The item “Voigtlander Prominent with35mm 3.5 Skoparon” is in sale since Tuesday, July 20, 2021. This item is in the category “Cameras & Photo\Vintage Movie & Photography\Vintage Cameras\Rangefinder Cameras”. The seller is “ellettmc” and is located in Hanover, Maryland.
