    Both of these cameras have the F2 Ultron but the colour Skopar is very good as well. Some shots with the Vitessa on my web page, just click on classic cameras.

    The Retina has a very important place in photographic history. It popularized 35mm photography in a way that few expected because of Kodak's introduction of the daylight loading cartridge that is pretty much the same one that we use today.

    The Retina encompasses a lot of cameras and body styles from fixed-lens zone-focus and rangefinder folders to interchangeable front-element folders and an SLR to an interchangeable-lens rangefinder and four SLRs and a fixed-lens rigid-front rangefinder (IIS).

    Great cameras -- except for the final Retina (S1), and a real variety of available lenses.

    Retina IIa... Recovered using a kit from CameraLeather.com. A great "walk-around town" camera.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    I would argue that the introduction of the standard cartridge with the Retina unlocked the door to popular use of 35mm, but that it was the availability of the Argus A model at $12.50 that opened it. The folding Retinas were not inexpensive.

    Your Retina looks great! Which kit is this? Did you do this yourself (if so, how difficult was it?), or did you farm out the job? I've been toying with the idea of doing the same to my IIa, but don't know if I have the patience or skill to do the job correctly myself. Maybe I'll ask my "CLA Guy" if he'd tackle it.

    P.S.-Also like the placement & material of handstrap..... Is it homemade?
