They both should be fine, the ones I have from pre and post=war cameras (Federal Germany) have rarely failed, albeit needing a cleaning once every 20 yrs.
The lens, I have never seen before, I expect you'll need a shade though
Thank you, I had read opinions regarding both but nothing absolute. It may be because of the fact that it was manufactured in communist EAST GERMANY and reliable information may have been difficult to get. One site says PRONTOR another COMPUR. Which would you say is the better more reliable? Also do you know how good the lens might be? It is a coated E. LUDWIG 105 mm 4.5 MERITAR.

However this weekend I got a Fujinon-EX 50/4. The lens is clean and has a lot of blades in the iris
Anybody knows anything about this series of lenses?

After a while, I thought it looked sort of cool.
Voigtlander was often doing something weird with its cameras. Sometimes, weird worked, sometimes it didn't (Prominent).

He was a very organized man, and he kept the original manual in the original plastic bag marked Asahi Pentax.
While looking through the manual, the price list from SUGA Photo was also there. It was very neat to see how much cameras costed in Japan at the time and how much he paid for the equipment. Next to the price in Yens, it is written in pencil the USD equivalent.
The camera (SP+55/1.8+case) costed 42,700 Y ($142); SMC 17/4 32,000 Y ($106) SMC 200/4 23,900 Y ($62), auto-helicoid 2,700 Y ($9)
There is also in the neat japanese numbers an offer for $270 with bag and flash which is the equipment I grew up with.
