A mid 60's Tokyo Kogaku Topcon Auto 100 that was imported to the USA by Beseler. Overall,the camera is very good shape. When I received it,it was a bit dusty but after I clean it up,it looks brand new.

It comes with an f/3.5,35mm lens and an f/4,135mm lens. The lenses are UV models that only work with this model camera and maybe one other Topcon model. That being said,I think getting two lenses with this camera,especially a 35mm lens,is great although getting a 50mm too would have been perfect.

The camera works fine except for the light meter. I put a new battery in it and it initially worked but gave unreliable readings soon after. I concluded that if the light meter wasn't working properly,the auto exposure may not be working properly either. When I tested the camera with film,I used a hand held light meter for readings.

As a precaution,I re-enforced the light seals because they were looking suspect. All the photo came out light leak free.

The body case is in great condition except for one snap/fastener that is broken off. The 135mm lens has a case that is in good condition and has a front and rear cap. The 35mm lens only has a front cap. This camera has a strap that matches the case and is in decent condition.

Sold AS IS.
