This is the Leidolf Lordomat, a wonderful rangefinder made in circa 1953 in Wetzlar, Germany, home to Leitz. Though considerably lighter that other rangefinders such as the Canon P and Tower 45 it is heavier than the likes of the Yashica 35.
The camera supports interchangeable lenses though this camera came with the Schacht-Travenar f3.5 35mm. Others avaliable include the Lordon f2.8 50mm and Schacht-Travenar f4 135mm.
Though a bit unusual, winding and cocking the shutter with the index finger soon becomes second nature and is no more difficult that lever winding with the thumb.
