    General:

    The C series (early ones badged "Mamiyaflex", later ones just "Mamiya") were a major departure in TLR development, using bellows for close focusing (dowwn to 7") and a wide range of interchangeable paired lenses.

    The C2 was launched in 1958, improved mainly by two focus knobs rather than one, by a removable hood and the Seikosha-S shutter on the standard lens. Rack extension/ bellows focus down to 7" transformed the TLR market. Shutters were also improved.

    -----------------
    Specifics:


    Taking lens is Sekor 105mm f3.5 (silver) in a Seikosha-S Shutter (1 to 1/500th). Speeds sound correct at the faster speeds, but may lag at the slower (1/4 or slower).

    The original leatherette was in bad shape, so I've replaced it with the "Saddle Tan" style used on the famous Polaroid SX-70. Should get you some glances when you take it into the field!

    You'll also get a Sekor 80mm f.35 lens in a Seikosha shutter, but that shutter has problems. 1/4 and 1/8 are completely off, and other speeds are iffy.

    Very nice!!

    The C2 was my first Mamiya TLR and I must say it's more friendly and beautiful than the C330, C33 and C3.

    The 105 is a beautiful lens that gives the classic tessar "bokeh".

    Let me know if someone might be interested in the body as I'm in the lens.
