Cosina Voigtländer Accessories = Instant Collectibles?

Hi all,



recently I found the former prices of these items:



Double Accessory Shoe:
Discontinued & Sold Out
February 2006 UPDATE:
Cosina discontinued the Type B and C Double Shoes.
May 2007
Type A Discontinued.

http://www.cameraquest.com/voigtacc.htm

In 2005, our Head Bartender offered them for $45.

http://web.archive.org/web/200512190...m/inventor.htm

Now, what are the prices they make today?

An example (evilB):

Voigtlander double accessory shoe A rangefinder leica

Ended: 28 Mar, 2010 23:32:41 BST
Bid history: 11 bids
Item number: 270551115258

Item location: Plymouth, New Hampshire, United States




Winning bid: US $213.50


(-: People, forget the stock exchange -- buy Voigtländer!

Perhaps not so much collectible as usable? Like a VOOLA if you own a 50/3.5 Emar.

Cheers,

R.

Prices like this are disconnected from any reality. Seems a lot of folks in the camera hobby will pay anything to get what they want.

The idea of taking a small Leica - or even a Bessa L - and festooning it with finders and rangefinders seems to me to defeat the whole concept.

Then again, $213.50 is less than a good driver for golf. It's a hobby, you know?

Dear Roger,
dear Pickett:

You are both right -- I must confess, I also have this adapter, and I use it quite often ;-)

Oy!
Talk about a big problem!
You could make your own for $8.64 from the dreck you can get out of a bargain bin at a photo swap meet.
Two non-dedicated hot-shoes, and the cheapest, piece of junk flash you can find for the hot-shoe foot, a strip of aluminum or even plastic for the base, and a tube of 5-minute epoxy and you're in business.

Another way to look at is that $213 would buy you a user Bessa R. Or maybe even a user Rolleiflex or Autocord if you're patient. Amazing.

Check out the 28/35 mini finder. Available for US 349 now.

Better get the stuff when it's still available, and keep it. Bad if you sell, it get's discontinued, and you want it back .....

I'm surprised that some enterprising Chinese factory hasn't started making copies and selling them on ebay for $9.99 each! Then we'd see how collectible the original is....

A great CV accessory is the combo lens/finder case which fits the CV 15 and 21 (ltm versions, but fits with the adapter snugly).

These are great deals, leather, just the right size, and prevent you from losing those little finders.

I'm always on the lookout for them.

Yes, those are great! But I mostly pull out the molded foam finder bed, and use the upper compartment to keep the hood that goes with the lens n the lower compartment. Works great for: Summaron 35/2.8 with IROOA; Summicron 50/2 Rigid with 12585; Elmar 50/2.8 with ITOOY; etc.

I saw this on Ebay recently, $3.5K or so.
Cheap, I say.

Actually for the size of that motor and battery housing once could couple two leica M's, one film and another digital.
Want some nice Digi files and at the next moment feel like shooting some Pushed Tri-X? Then invert it like a dev tank!

That'd be a Twin lens RF?

On the topic, my current ethos is bang for the buck and if $300 cound bring a Medium Format camera, no way I'm going for an accesory. Haven't found myself in that position yet though.
