Exakta VX IIa.

 

The “1960” Exakta Varex IIa

While essentially the same model, this late (1962) Exakta Varex IIa replaced the traditional Exakta logo with something more “modern” at the time. The front plate is also changed, not necessarily for the better.The pentaprism has also a new shape; this is P.3, manufactured from 1960 on.

The lens mounted on this camera is a beauty: the 4.0/25 auto-diaphragm Flektogon, the second-widest lens Zeiss ever made for the Exakta (there was a 20 mm Flektogon, too).

  1. I love Exakta cameras! I have an Exakta VX from the late 50s and a bunch of lenses and accessories. She used to be my only camera and I have put many many rolls of film through her with excellent results. The Zeiss lenses are really top notch!

    Perhaps I need to through a new roll in again…
