    I'll chime in about the Welturs. Either the 6x9 or the 6x6/6x4.5 have great focussing mechanisms and pretty good finders. Not as good as an Ensign Autorange, but not the same crazy money. Built like tanks, great bellows, both my 6x9 and 6x6 worked like new, even the 1 sec shutter speed, and no light leaks.

    For a cheap date, get a Franka Solida 6x6 or its Tower -branded, Sears-sold version. Uncoupled rangefinder, fast and sharp 2.9 Schneider Radionar coated lens, great bokeh (if that's not too annoying to say). Should not be much over 100 bucks even now.

    If you're buying non-system cameras, you can buy from just about anybody if you budget in CLA. I have a passel of folders and none from certo6. Not that I have anything for or agin him, he's just never had anything I wanted when I've had the big dosh.

    I got one of these too! Though there's a bit of fungus on the lens. Even the light cell works!! Waiting for next paycheck to cla.
