Late versions of Zeiss Ikon Contaflex and Contarex cameras had interchangeable backs. I have a Contaflex with this facility as Eric described. They are well built but being leaf-shuttered SLR's have rather limited interchangeable lens capabilities. The interchangeable back system works quite well but you need to keep to rigid sequence to use the facility.
