Canon Rangefinders - Peter Dechert and Peter Kitchingman Peter Dechert is best known for his Canon Rangefinder, Canon SLR, and Olympus Pen books, the latter two long out-of-print. He was a monthly columnist for many years for SHUTTERBUG magazine, and has contributed to many others. Most recently he has written about the pre-WW2 Zeiss 35mm cameras, but his interests in camera equipment and optics are many and varied. As a pro protographer and honorary life member of ASMP, Peter is also expert in using the gear! Peter Kitchingman - author of Canon Rangefinder Lens book Peter Kitchingman's 'Canon M39 Rangefinder Lenses 1939-71' book is the definitive source on these very interesting optics. His interests also go to the entire Canon Rangefinder system and beyond.

Doesn't quite have the same ring to it...
Still sounds better than "What is it with the Sony Ar RII and lovely women?"

Why would you want to take a photo with a TV?

Look at the front rings.
I see one smooth ring and one with lines (sorry I don't know the name in english for it).



in Ringo's lens I see two front smooth plain rings.


the rest, yes is very similar.

In that grainy blow-up it is hard to tell if both raised landings on the lens are smooth or knurled or one of each.

I say that the lens matches the chrome plated super speed Zunow f1.1 lens, unless you know of another maker of period fast 50mm lenses that fits the visual description in those photos.

The super rare Nikkor 5cm f1.1 in LTM was mostly in black finish.

And the fast Canons generally had a black bezel.
