Subject: [Leica] Canon Camera Clearance

Howdy from cold and snowy Wyoming. 

I need to sell much of my Canon RF camera collection to finance our new 
eco/green retail store and help transition the photo business.  I have owned 
these cameras for many years and used them all.  They are all in fine 
working condition but not collector (mint) condition.

Canon III body, speeds 1-1/1000 sec on two dial, 3 magnification coupled 
RF/VF with mags. for 50, 100 and highmag., shutter is smooth and does not 
leak light (no pinholes). This is a great body for a pocket camera with a 
collapsable 50 or thin 35 mm lenses.                                         

Canon IIIa body with rapid wind baseplate (scarce)or(uncommon), like a 
Leicavit, other features similar to the above model III.                     

Canon V-t, a BIG step forward for Canon.  Back opening, larger and brighter 
RF/VF, built-in trigger rapid wind baseplate, VF magnification frames for 
35, 50 and highmag (sort of 135ish).  One of my all time favorite cameras 
since it is comfortable to use and quick to operate.  I still have film in 
it from my last outing.  $300.00

Canon V-t deluxe, similar to the above V-t but with rewind crank instead of 
pop-up knob, few other minor differences.                                    

Canon 25mm f/3.5 classic and uncommon wide-angle lens.  I am going to miss 
this one.                $350.00

Canon 100mm f/4 classic longfocus portrait tele similar to a Leitz Elmar, 
not expensive but nice character for portraits and it looks cool on the III 
or IIIa, with finder.                                       $200.00

Canon 135mm f/3.5 black telephoto, a much under appreciated lens that is as 
good or better than other brands of the same vintage.  This would work great 
on the Vt or Vt-deluxe and even better on a Canon 7, 7s.      $135.00

Canon EF body, Canon's early entry into auto exposure and electronic shutter 
SLRs.  Manual speeds from 1-1/1000 and electronic slow speeds to 30 sec. 
This camera has what might be the smoothest film advance on an SLR next to 
the Leicaflex.                                                               

I also have a fine bamboo trout rod for sale: Paul H. Young Perfection taper 
7.5 foot, 4wt, made by Danny Twang. I am reluctantly selling this because I 
have exercise induced asthma and waving a trout rod around is too much 
This is a great rod for brook trout fishing and small streams, perhaps even 
small-mouth bass fishing. $900.00

Please inquire off-list to:
