Agfa Agfaflex IV

This camera is awesome! Based on pictures from the auction site, I was expecting something slightly gimmicky like my Agfa Optima Reflex. Instead, the Agfaflex IV, known as the Ambiflex II outside of the United States, is a gem.

The controls are well laid out and camera construction is impeccable. It has interchangeable lenses and viewfinders. Mine came with a prism finder but found a waist-level one for it as well.
