Ihagee Exakta Varex IIb
Manufactured from 1963, this SLR has an interchangeable pentaprism finder, and a horizontal-run focal-plane shutter with speeds from 12 seconds to 1/1000 second. The standard lens fitted to this body is a Carl Zeiss Pancolar 50mm f/2.
This model is engraved Exakta Varex IIb. The Varex name was dropped in some markets because of trademark issues, and in those markets the cameras were marked VXIIb instead.
With this camera I also got this nice Jena Flektogon 35mm f/2.8 lens.
