Welcome to my listings featuring some of the best cameras and lenses on ebay. 

A cosmetically very nice example of the hard to find Vivitar 35ES camera. These jewels are hard to beat in the quality 35mm rangefinder cameras. One of the high quality offerings from Vivitar introduced in 1978. It's smaller than the Canon GIII 17 and has a lens that is just as fast, a 1:1.7 40mm which has been mentioned in reviews as "pin sharp". These are shutter speed preferred auto cameras just like the Canon, set your shutter speed and the camera will select the proper lens opening. This camera has also been likened to the Konica S3 and the Minolta 7sII.  The metering works great and the view through the finder is clear. However the rangefinder needs calibration as it's not synchronized with the lens focusing. It will try to align the patch but just won't get there. If you want to use as is than set the lens for the proper distance on the distance scale and shoot away. Would be just like a zone focus camera. Lens is clear and without scratches and the aperture blades working properly. Flash sync has been checked and works properly. A very nice quality camera.

Please check my other listings for more nice items.

 Thank You.

Please Read The Below, It's Part Of The Description Of The Item!


                               All cameras/lenses are sold as described, but as is with no warranties expressed or implied. Many are over 30 years old and may work fine now but may experience problems in the future that can't be foreseen. All cameras have been test fired between 36 to 72 times without incident to verify shutter/release/sound performance. (Not including those selling for parts/repair) I do the best I can listing all items as accurately as possible and when possible providing pictures that depict the actual item being sold, no stock photos are ever used. Unless otherwise stated all cameras listed will have their original seals and mirror bumper pads, these degrade with time and should be replaced. The buyer by bidding understands that this is a service that should be performed at the buyers expense. Also unless otherwise stated these items are not film tested, so I am not accountable for the actual results attained. Meters and shutter speeds are not tested for accuracy. If you have a problem with a item please contact me immediately by e-mail, do not open a case please, so I can resolve the issue. I will assume that if I do not here from you in 3 days after you receive the item/items they have arrived and are working as described.

do not check or recommend the use of mechanical self timers unless the camera was recently serviced. They are the number one reason for camera failure. Electronic timers excluded. Buy a after market timer if you like that feature.

All cameras are given a final check before shipping. All serial numbers are recorded to prevent fraud. We all wish the people who handle our packages will be gentle and caring, but this is the real world and the packages get pretty beat up at times. The items inside take some of the abuse as well no matter how well their packaged.  If you receive the item and there is something wrong with it please contact me immediately by e-mail first before crying foul to ebay. If your package is damaged tell your carrier!  

Last but not least, batteries will not be included with any items sold. It will be the buyers responsibility to purchase and install the correct battery/batteries.

Thank you.
