Royal 35-M. Sweet to look at and in use. Even the meter works!

Good morning, David;

The later version is the 5.6/60mm WA lens, which may actually be the same lens with a slightly different label.
I probably could have prevented any confusion by just saying that I have completed my selection of lenses for the Koni-Omega Rapid-M, rather than saying that I have a complete selection. I had already decided that I would just go with the 5.6/58mm, the 3.5/90mm, and the 4.5/180mm lenses, so for me, my selection was complete.
In any case, now the K-O Hexanon 4.5/180mm lens is here also, and I am very happy to have finished my K-O kit. Well, almost. Now there is a need for the "Blue Top" lens case for storing the lens when it is not on the camera. GAS and a known addiction to cameras is such a burden to bear.

When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."
Glad you are enjoying the Koni-Omegas.
Should I apologize for enabling?

Sorry I sounded like a smart-aleck as they say in my country (actually they say smart-arse) I also have the K-O 100 and 200 but only the 60 and 90. I briefly had an extreme GAS attack for the Omega TLR which was a BEAST... But the threat of having to live in the garden shed (how could you possibly sneak one in the house?) cured me.

Most older selenium meters had two ranges, the outdoor range where you would use the meter with the cover down and the low light range, cover raised. Some meters like the Leica/metrawatt would have a slot for an extra selenium cell to increase accuracy in very low light.

My first foray into the world of the Rangefinders :-) I found a `demoed` once Nikon Y2k S3 (chrome) c/w 5cm f1.4 and a mint (no `cleaning` marks) 10.5cm f2.5 tele. Now starts the long learning curve!
After my F6, the `squinty` viewfinder is going to take some getting used to and as I wear glasses I find that the bright-lines and rangefinder patch are impossible to see in some lighting conditions and angles.
So little time, so much to learn!
My first rangefinder, a Kodak Retina IIIa. A KEH "bargain" that absolutely looks and feels like new.
the Voigtlander Vitessa L is beautiful, your a lucky man!
Bought myself a dusty Zeiss Ikonta folder with a really busted and torn never ready case(in pieces), turned out to be a Zeiss Super Ikonta IV with a 75mm 3.5 Tessar lens! woot! Got the shutter to fire once by bypassing the plunger and tripping the latch on the lens barrel, but It wouldn't cock to fire again. Really small and dirty rangefinder though, but Im excited, sending it out soon to get it repaired and in shooting order. Hopefully its not too expensive!
