FED-2 Body

The FED-2 is the first and very successful attempt by Soviet camera makers to improve upon the original Leica design, which was copied in the FED 1 for two decades. The camera has the following new features - a removable back cover, a new, wide base, rangefinder coupled with a viewfinder, a dioptric adjustment of the VF and strap lugs. As any Soviet Leica copy this FED-2 is compatible with the 39 mm Leica TM lenses.

The body and the back cover were cast, which made the camera more rigid than the original FED. The shutter and the film transport mechanism were also redesigned and work very smoothly. There were many modifications made to the FED-2 during its production from the mid 1950's to 1970.

This FED-2 body is type b (by Princelle), made in the 1960's. Shutter speeds: B, 1/25 - 1/500,

The FED-2 is in exc- condition, clean and attractive. The finish is clean, the covering is complete. The RF/VF is clear and sharp.

This FED-2 comes complete with a take-up spool.

This FED-2 is a capable user and a desirable collectible camera. You can use any Leica screwmount lens on this FED-2 body.
