Topcon SLR family in order of introduction.

Topcon had an early start in SLR cameras, where the first models were groundbreaking. The affair lasted about twenty years, where the late models were lackluster reincarnations of the glorious ones. In the US, Topcon sold under Beseler’s name, while in OZ under Hanimex. Several other models were rebranded or made per distributors’ specs. There are several scientific and medical cameras, namely FP-M, FP PM-FL, DM-S, MT-1, MT-2 that carry no interest to collectors.

Most Topcon SLR cameras sold today are high-end models. The cheaper models are offered as well, just there are no takers.

For real world current values of the Topcon cameras, please see camdex.ca
