Re: BEIRAX II

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...

Re: BEIRAX II

Mike, I have read that it is possibly an EAST GERMAN COMPUR equivalent. It is an odd duck. I have seen a reference to a 1930's BEIRAX with the same serial number as my 1957/58 model. Are you familiar with the lens quality? It is a 105 mm 4.5 E. LUDWIG MERITAR.

Re: BEIRAX II

I tried to post photos got a notice that file was too large. I'll have my daughter fix the problem. At 80 I am not a computer whiz.

BEIRAX II

I have bought a circa 1957/58 BEIR BEIRAX II E. LUDWIG 105 mm 4.5 MERITAR TEMPOR SHUTTER. I am not familiar with BEIR LUDWIG or TEMPOR. I'm aware that it is not on a par with my VOIGTLANDER BESSA and AGFA BILLY COMPUR however it appears to be well built. Does anyone have an opinion or review?

Re: NIKKOR-P 135 MM 3.5 FOR BRONICA

GrahamS, Thank you. I had thought that NIKKOR lenses must be of superb quality however finding no review left me wondering if this lens could be on the list of inferior lenses made by even the best lens makers.

Re: NIKKOR-P 135 MM 3.5 FOR BRONICA

GrahamS, I was in error, it is a NIKKOR Q. What is your opinion of it?

What is the serial number for film holders for this camera? Another question will a 4x5 film holder fit?
