    Jim, glad you are back. I enjoy your posts. I don’t know if you have shot an Exacta camera. You should give it a try. It’s hard to find one that is in decent condition. I have the VXB. The cloth shutter gets a bit mottled as mine is but it works well enough. The 50mm lens that came with mine was very stiff, but I got a 35mm Myer Optik Triptolan that is awesome. It has a waist level finder that draws curious onlookers so be prepared to be an ‘item’ if you take the plunge.

      Thanks for reading! I haven’t bought an Exacta yet. Thanks for the experience report. It’ll help me when I eventually try one out.
