This is a late production Leotax TV with correct Topcor-S 5cm f/2 M39 threadmount lens. This lens was the top of the line offered with this camera. His is a 35mm Rangefinder Film Camera. Made in Japan in 1959. This is basically an improved Leotax F with a higher top shutter speed and a redesigned film counter integrated into the top plate. It was the first Leotax to have a built in self timer.
The baseplate looks very nice with just a few minior brightmarks. The rangefinder is working and easy to see. A take up spool is included.
The shutter curtains are supple and the shutter is working at all speeds. The lens focus and diaphragm are working smoothly. The focus is marked in meters.
There is no oil on the diaphragm blades. The lens glass is very nice. No haze, fungus or separation. There are a few very minor light scratches and light dust that affect nothing.
