Sometimes the choice gets made for you. At an estate auction yesterday I bought what quick research says is either a Type I or II Rilleiflex Automat, dating from the serial number to early 1939. The serial number is 804993. It has a 7.5 cm f/3.5 Tessar in Compur-Rapid taking lens and the Heidoscop-Anastigmat f/3.1 viewing lens. The lenses don't appear to be coated, so I'm going to have to remember that. It seemed to work out for photographers like Robert Doiseneau, so it'll certainly be all right for me! It seems to be in mint condition in a perfect leather "everready" case, and there's also a flash attachment. I think that $80 was fair for the best of the three at the auction.
Is there any advice anyone wants to give me for playing with my new toy? Any "Dont do this or it breaks" comments?
