Voigtlander Vitessa-T 35mm Rangefinder Camera

Serial Number:4211736

The Voigtlander Vitesa-T rangefinder camera was produced in Braunschweig Germany from 1957-59.

This model was the replacement of the earlier folding Vitessa models.

The obvious difference is the “T” has a rigid body and so replacing the Barn doors. The rangefinder, uncoupled selenium cell meter (light meter responsive to light changes) and the plunger rod film advance mechanism is the same. The Vitesse T has the option of interchangeable lenses which sit on the Synchro-compur leaf shutter system 1-1/500.  This camera comes with the Color-Skopar f/2.8 50 standard lens. Focusing is achieved by a ring around the lens instead of the thumb wheel operation present on the last model.


Cosmetically the camera is excellent and still retains its new look.

The f/2.8 50 Color-skopar lens works fine with super clear optics.

The downside to the camera is the shutter is erratic and works when it feels like it. (So sold as is)

The camera comes with all that's in the photos, which is most of its original packaging box and literature.


This is one beautiful camera and a mechanical work of art.
