Craig and LUGers,
I bought Omnica bag when I was stationed in France in '59. It's a pretty rigid
bag somewhat along the lines of the Benser bag of about the same era. At the
time I used it for my Rollei. I don't know when they went out of business or
what happened to the company but I hope that I might find someone to restore it.
Sentimental value and just right for my M2 and its four lenses.
