the vitessa is one of my dream camera, the mechanichs are so interesting, and so the fast ultron f/2; the design so simple and elegant ...
But I have any doubts about buying it on ebolay ... I'd like to buy a good working camera no matter about the cosmestics...

Nico thought I would give this a bump. Probably one of the most beautiful cameras ever made. Very solid, fits well in the hand, the plunger feature is a marvel. The Ultron f.2 is a damn good lens. As usual ebay is a crapshoot, but I managed to get an excellent boxed one with manual and case for about $120 plus shipping. Your GAS attack reminded me that I need to take mine for a stroll. Here are a couple of old photos taken with the vitessa.
Have you looked in KEH?
Or surf thorugh APUG and other classifieds, they pop from time to time for about 250-300 euros in good condition
I have one with the Skopar and I'm happy with it but the Ultron is a few steps ahead!
