Voigtlander Vitomatic IIa + Ultron 2/50
Many people are of the opinion that the early Voigtlander Vitomatic models are one of the best looking fixed lens rangefinders of all time. That might or might not be true, but they are definitely magnificently built, heavy and well designed pieces of Germanic engineering. The Vitomatic family of cameras were based on the earlier and simpler Vitos, but now equipped with rangefinders and a coupled lightmeter. They all have Prontor shutters and Color Skopar 2.8/50 lenses.Voigtlander decided a bit later on that a flagship was needed for the range and they gave it their best 35mm lens: the 2.0/50 Ultron. This lens was designed for for use on their professional Prominent camera. The Ultron, according to many experts, was one of the very best fast standard lenses of the fifties and sixties.
What do you get:
A very good looking Vitomatic IIa, this one has the light meter scale visible in the 1:1 viewfinder. It has a Prontor SLK 1s-1/500s shutter that runs well on all speeds. The Ultron lens is clean and undamaged, the coating looks nice.The selenium meter is lively, but after sixty-odd years a bit past its best-by date. Use a handheld meter instead for best results. The RF is in good nick, in alignment and the rf spot is still distinctive.The Vitomatic is a camera that will definitely find the connoiseurs eye. It is small, heavy and handles very well.The Ultron gives it exceptional performance, that will still stand out today.
