Question Vitessa Gas Attack ...

Hi all,
I'd like to buy a vintage Voigtlaender Vitessa (with ultron without light meter) but I'd rather buy it out of ebay. Do you know any reliable on-line shop I can take a look to?
thanks

Nico,
I was surfing ebay last night, looking for a good deal on a Vitessa with the Ultron.

Hi Raid,
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...

I feel the same way as you do. The optics are most important in a camera. I have the 50/1.5 Nokton for the Voghtlaender Prominent, so it is "natural" to look for a Voightlaender with the Opton.

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!
