Exakta Vx Iia Version 7 Camera In Box & Zeiss 50mm 2 Lens Germany Ussr Occupied :
Please read this carefully!!
This is an Exakta VX IIa Version 7. This is a 35mm Reflex Camera in the original box. The lens is a Carl Zeiss Jena Pancolar 50mm 2. Body number 993260. Lens Number 6821821. This dates to 1961. The shutter is working at all speeds. I see no pin holes in the shutter. The slow speed delay timer seems to be working, but I am never comfortable using this gizmo. The advance is smooth and the counter is working. The lens focus and auto diaphragm are working. The focus is a little stiff, but not bad. There is no oil on the blades. The lens glass is very nice. No haze, fungus or scratches. The camera comes with 2 finders. The eye level finder ground glass has a few marks, but looks OK. The waist level finder looks good, but opens just a bit past vertical. No camera has no dents, brassing or missing leather. Overall a cosmetic 9+ or better and a very collectible or useable camera. You get the matching box, instructions, take up spool, extra finder and a generic lens cap. Please add $10.95 priority shipping in the USA. Overseas buyers pay actual shipping costs.Regards, Darryl
Please note: The camera is marked Germany USSR Occupied. On page 80 of my Exakta Camera 1933-1978 by Aguila & Rouah it say's the following, "On a VX IIa, 7th version, with the new front plate, the non-engraved legend "Germany U.S.S.R. Occupied", presumably etched, can be found on the right hand side of the top plate. This inscription is much less tidy than the engraved one.
Editor's note: It appears that these markings were put on cameras to be sold on US territory because at that time the US Government did not recognize the GDR. The markings are assumed to have been applied by the US Customs. .0
