I must be weird: I actually prefer the "look" given by the Skopar on the bombdoor Vitessa.

I have twice passed the chance to get a Vitessa for a very low price.
I have the Prominent with a Nokton, so I am content.

Hi Raid,
is this a mantra you repeat to avoid gas on the Vitessa ?
cheers

eBay is a good place for appraisals. As of recent, Voigtlander Vitessa rangefinders have been selling for $50-158. A fair asking price for one as described would be around $120-150. The exact model (there were several) probably wouldn't change anything.

Hi guys.
I couldn't avoid to fell in love with the ultron lens. I found a vitomatic III b with this lens. I bought it, but the ultron 2/50 in the vitomatic is the same than you have in the vitessas?

Thanks a lot for support me in this anxiety's moment.

Rino.

I'd have never said there were that much people out there using this camera and having such a great results!! Mine is an A3 model I bought in Sweden about three years ago.

I rather use MF, but I guess I must run a roll through mine more frequently...

That's a pity that occurred to me too with my last roll but the b/w conversion almost made the leaks unvisible.
Nice colours anyway Steamer!
