    The camera cannot lie, but it cannot help being selective.

    A Zeiss Ikonta 524/2 with the Novar lens is a good start. They are very nicely made, have an uncoupled rangefinder and handle nicely.

    So, why the Novar lens and not the Tessar? Price - with the Novar you are not competing against collectors, and at most working apertures you are unlikely to see the difference.

    Ensign Selfix 820 with 105mm Ross Xpress lens (probably in Epsilon shutter). Late examples can get quite pricey so shop around. Zeiss Ikonta (of course) and Voightländer Bessa are also good.

    Even the old Agiflex wasn't that bad.

    I have a Mockva 2 and a Mockva 5 which are said to be Russian copies of the Super Ikonta. Both required effort to adjust the lens focus calibration and patch a few light leaks in the bellows but I get good results from them now.

    Ercona IIs with Tessars don't go for much on eBay, but they don't have coupled rangefinders, if you think you need one.
