Description:

SOLD

Bessa RF 6x9 Heliar f3.5/105mm lens Very nice example of this excellent camera. The Heliar lens is very much the one to get. I have this Heliar and the later Color Heliar and frankly can not justify having both. I thought of offering both and keeping whichever did not sell first but now,… I’ve decided to sell this one. I’ve had it since 2011.

The Shutter was overhauled during a CLA. Shutter speeds are great giving excellent accurate exposures.

The Aperture is operating smoothly and makes a completely round iris for pretty oof highlights.

The RF is accurate and I have been able to use it for portraits in close range with great confidence.The split image rangefinder is very clear and contrasty (pics attached)

 

Focus rails are well lubed and operate smootly.

Bellows are good, supple, and light tight. The Leather cover is excellent (check out the Letter embossing… beautiful).

Lens Struts are good with no bends from inappropriate folding…. this camera has had good care over the years and it shows.

The camera will include a 37mm slip on Yellow filter and original never ready case.

$500 includes USPS priority post to the US is a great price for a Heliar RF in this condition. 

International Shipping available at cost for full insured priority mail.

The big 6x9 frame is fantastic with this f3.5/105mm lens. I only have a few pics online from this camera they can be seen here in this flickr album.

Oh, that’s a nice one. Would that be in Europe I would surely go for it. I somewhat regret selling my Bessa with Color Skopar - amazing quality in such a compact camera, great for travel ( maybe the bokeh of Skopar was a bit “nervous”...) So I later tried to buy another Bessa with Heliar and liked the bokeh much more, unfortunately RF was misaligned. This black one looks very nice...

Thanks Valdas. I will ship to most of Europe at cost.... just saying Smile 


There are some of this model available in Europe. Very few in North America.


Any version of the Heliar on this 6x9 frame is special. This uncoated one gives a very special look. Maybe even better for low contrast color than B+W.


I'm very torn but can't use them all so offer it now.

Tempting, but I have spent a fortune on Noblex 150 recently and then import VAT makes it sooo much more expensive Smile But good luck with the sale!

Someone please buy this. I have the Bessa II Skopar and it's a great camera. The RF with Heliar is more desirable, as Valdas mentioned. Andy is a good person to buy from. GLWS!
