This looks pretty good at the BIN price: http://cgi.ebay.ca/KODAK-RETINA-IIa-CAMERA-WITH-CASE_W0QQitemZ360092506909QQihZ023QQcategoryZ15234 QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Congratulations to Mike E. This should be a nice pocket shooter.

Yeah, Mike got a goodie there. I'd be jealous except I just recently won a great little Vito IIa pocket rocket. Hopefully it's as good as it looks; Mike's too :)

The Retina IIa is one of the great classic rangefinders and is a pure joy to use. It's top quality in every sense and produces beautiful pictures. Congrats for winning one and enjoy!

I got a similar deal about two years ago... didn't realize how excellent the camera was until Chris gave it a CLA, what started out as acceptable turned into superb! If you plan on using the camera seriously, have it adjusted. My IIa has turned into one of my most used serious cameras... almost single handedly turned me into a RF shooter instead of being a SLR shooter with some cool old RF's... enjoy the IIa!

Since this thread was current, I picked up a IIa. Alas, the shutter was all hosed but it's off for a visit to Eddy Smolov's Day Spa for Wayward Cameras and should be as good as new soon enough :)
