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.

Canon 50mm F0.95 Lens


Have just been lucky enough to find a 50mm F0.95, complete with front cap and original lens shade, at a very, very reasonable price! The lens is in great condition but has no rear cap. Did they come with one? Did they come in a leather lens case?

If someone out there has a rear cap or leather lens case available, please let me know. I am also looking for the Canon 7/7S leather camera case with the big snout to fit this lens.

They definitely came with a rear cap. A rather unusual three-pronged deal that bayoneted onto the lens, with the word “Canon Japan” inscribed on the back . The inside of the cap could be either black or silver.

An old Canon product guide I have from 1965 says that an exclusive case was available.
