Voigtlander made two excellent rangefinders Vitomatic IIa and Vito BR. Neither uses a battery and are very sturdy cameras. The Vito BR has no built-in light meter but the Vitomatic does. My main camera is the Voigtlander Vitomatic IIa. The Zeiss Ikon Contessa LKE is just as good and also does not use batteries.
