    I love classic german 35mm cameras.

    I got two retinas off of keh.com but I'm wondering if there are any good dealers? Like fedka for fsu or jurgen/certo6 for 120 folders. I know that there is a retina guy (i forgot his name) but is there a voigtlander guy? Or any reccomended ebay dealers?

    I have bought a couple of folders from Jurgen at certo6 and have been satisfied. There is a guy on Ebay called Jacques's Excellent Retinas in Belgium but I've never bought anything from him. I really like Retinas and the guy I have sent mine to for CLA's is Chris Sherlock in New Zealand. He is excellent for Retina repairs. He has also worked on a Voigtlander for me.

    I bought a Zorki 1 from Fedka, you pay more but the cameras have been checked out so you know you're getting one that works properly.

    Your best bet is see if there's any camera fairs in your area. At the one I go to there are specialists selling some great collectible cameras at good prices, some of the sellers are repair specialists so you know what you're getting.
