  • $ 55000


Vintage 1940's Canon IIB rangefinder camera in original leather case. Complete with its original Serenar f1.9 50mm lens this was the first Canon camera to have the ltd name which changed in 1947. The Canon IIB came out in 1949 and introduced an optical viewfinder with three modes. The viewfinder and rangefinder magnifies to .67X, 1X, or 1.5X with a magnification lever and has a semi universal lens mount. This collapsible lens has an M39 screw mount which fits into my Leica.

A great addition to your collectible camera and lens collection.


Camera measures 3.5" tall by 6" wide by 2.75" deep and weighs 1lb 14oz.


In nice condition with some signs of use commensurate with age. There is no fogging or mold on the lens. The shutter works well and the camera appears to be working well. The lens would benefit from a cleaning and there is a spot of wear on the camera body above the lens (please see all pictures as they form part of the condition description).
