Exakta Varex IIa

This camera came to me via a good friend. As you can see some of the front leatherett is missing and I'm still in the process of cleaning it up. This is a 1961 model IIa with the new name plate. It seems to work though the shutter curtains don't look the best and there is a 'zzzzziip' sound to the shutter at faster speeds.

 

It has a cleaned up Tessar mounted but it also has a Pancolar 50/2 which needs traces of fungus removed from the back of the front element when I can work out how to get it out. :-)

 

1960-1963
