    Walz Envoy 35 info needed

    Hello All,
    I recently acquired a Walz Envoy 35 Rangefinder at a camera swap. It seems to be in good working order. I'm in the process of shooting a roll of Tri-X with it. Serial # is 90159. Lens is a Nitto Kogaku - S Kominar 1:1.9 F=4.8cm, seven element. This camera feels very solid & well made. I've shot with Konica sII, Konica auto SII & Kiev rangefinders. My other cameras are Nikon mf & Rollei Twin lens. My questions are: Does any know the history or background of this model, year of manufacture? The motorcycle photo was shot using Tri-X f8 @ 250.

    These are quite nice with an excellent 7 element Zeiss Sonnar copy lens. I've repaired a few of them now.

    Big camera though IMO
    If it says Zeiss or Rollei, the answer is YES!
