    Strange Robot Royal II - screwmount lens and no rangefinder?

    Does anyone know more about this rare beauty?

    It seems to be a Robot Royal Mod. II - which is already very rare - but mine looks slightly different than one I saw on ebay: the accessory shoe is much higher. It seems as if not all of those 1000 that were built were made the same way.

    Is this the "Dr. Strangelove Edition"?

    I had a Robot without a rangerfinder, but like you said seems very differnt, even the logo looks more "modern".

    I will put that baby into the Classifieds - maybe a collector needs it.

    NOOOOO, don't sell it to a collector. That camera just screams street cred! It needs to be used (way out of my price range though....)

    A friend had a Robot with no rangefinder but a 75 mm lens that his father had pulled from a downed Me109 during the war. It was a gun camera.
