I wouldn't call what I have a collection as such but I bought them to use in high school and thereafter. Very reliable and well engineered cameras. I have 4 Exakta VX's with various lenses which still function beautifully. They are, according to the serial numbers, from the early 50's.
Anyone else have any of these gems? Just wondering.
You should post your question also (English is fine) in the German APHOG.de forum. I've noticed, that there are a couple of EXAKTA collectors are.
