Please read and understand all of this listing before buying and if you have any questions please ask first. You should also familiarise yourself with the details provided below and in our 'about me' page

IMPORTANT Notes, please read: Our carriers insist on a telephone number of the addressee so would you please ensure that you forward your telephone number to us at checkout time. This is so they can contact you should there be any issues with delivery. We would like to thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Shipping to destinations other than the England & Wales mainland. If you do not live on the England or Wales mainland then extra shipping charges will apply. Some areas of southern Scotland will not be affected but you should still contact us for clarification before bidding or buying. The following destinations are examples of places that will incur the extra charge (although the list is not exhaustive).

  • Channel Islands
  • Isle of Wight
  • Isle of man
  • Scilly Isles
  • Scottish Highlands
  • Scottish Islands
  • Northern Ireland
  • All International Destinations

We understand the frustration suffered by many customers living in Scotland but it is a simple fact that all carriers make the extra charge which is out of our control.


The international shipping cost quoted on the listing is what we believe to be the maximum charge for anywhere in the world. Each country is a different charge and eBay do not give us the option to list different prices for all the different countries so please contact us before bidding with your location for a definitive shipping cost. After you win the auction please wait for the amended invoice before paying.

Here we have for sale a rare limited edition black Nikon S3 35mm rangefinder camera with 50mm Nikkor-S f/1.4 prime lens. The whole kit is in pristine condition and although the camera is pre-owned it has never been used, evidenced by the protective cover over the shutter which is still in place. The camera and case are supplied in the original packaging and come with a six months guarantee.

At great expense (and loss) Nikon re-manufactured their S3 rangefinder masterpiece in limited numbers for the year 2000. We are delighted to offer one of these (now very scarce) with all original packaging (outer box & inner satin lined box) and documentation. Wikipedia notes as follows "In 2000, Nikon introduced an updated, hand-assembled S3 model to celebrate the new millennium. It was quite a production to produce S3s again, as all the original dies were long gone". The body comes with it's specially produced 50mm f/1.4 lens and hood. Note: the manual is in Japanese.

We also have for sale at a Nikon Nikkor-Q 135mm f/3.5 lens on eBay here.


The serial number of this item is 303809 and the lens s/n is 207462

We offer a six months guarantee with this item

If you wish to view the item before bidding you may do so by visiting our shop in Colwyn Bay (address below). If you win the auction you may collect it from our shop or we can post it to you.

We are happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases, please contact us when the sale ends to request a revised invoice.

Please note: In the light of far too much experience with non-paying bidders we will take a hard line if you win the auction and then fail to pay. It is very unfair on genuine bidders who miss out because of this behaviour so we will automatically open a case against all non-paying bidders if the item is not paid for within two days.
