The Kowa SET R2 was released in 1970, and it was the last of the Kowa SLRs in production to use a leaf shutter. The camera features a "behind the lens" leaf shutter arrangement and interchangeable lenses. The SET R2 above comes with a standard Kowa 50mm f2.8 lens. The camera also has combined TTL full aperture metering, and a complicated shutter design. The SET R2 instruction manual has a message to users that says we hope "this camera will become a companion of yours and afford you great enjoyment for years to come." The SET R2 can definitely bring enjoyment to the vintage camera lover or collector!
