For sale is a very rare used 1946/7 early Seiki-Kogaku Canon S-II (SII) 35mm rangefinder film camera with Canon Camera Co. Serenar f/3.5 5cm lens, front plain metal lens cap and lens hood plus brown leather case with strap. Was first marketed in late 1946 and was Canon’s first camera for export and the first Canon with a combined rangefinder/viewfinder – probably the first generally available Japanese 35mm with this feature. The first versions are marked. The 5cm lenses were a Serenar f/3.5, a Serenar f/2 and for a short while a Nikkor f/3.5. Shutter speeds are 1sec to 1/500. Serial Numbers of the S-II start at 15000 so this early example is camera body number 534. This very rare camera is in fair cosmetic condition for its age with normal signs of use – as you can see in the detailed pictures. The viewfinder is clean and clear and the rangefinder patch is nice and bright and well aligned. The camera has been tested and the shutter fires on all speeds but the slow speed are definitely not correct. The frame counter is working. It has not been tested with film so I can not guarantee the accuracy of the shutter speeds etc. The lens is of slightly later manufacture than the camera body and is in fair condition with some heavy wear on the surface of the collapsible barrel. The aperture and focus rings move smoothly and freely. No separation, dust or fungus visible but there is some light haze. The aperture blades move freely with some light oil visible.
