I just picked up a most fascinating Reproflex reflex housing on e-Bay, made by Karl Mueller, Jr., Memmingen. I suspect I am on firm ground linking this firm to the current NOVOFLEX FOTOGERÄTEBAU KARL MÜLLER, also locaed in Memmingen. This Reproflex seems to be a forerunner of the Novoflex reflex units which appeared in both LTM/M and Contax RF versions. Unfortunately, this unit, though it did come with the three close-up tubes mentioned in the instructions (and with the instructions, also!), lacked the release bridge, the linkage between the shutter release and the mirror in the reflex unit. I have e-mailed the seller in hopes that he still has this and will pass it along, but this is probably a vain hope. I may contact Novoflex: they reproduced a one-off release bridge for my Contax Novoflex reflex housing a decade back, and I may be able to sweet-talk them into doing this again, for the Reproflex this time. I am rather excited: yet another entry for the second edition (!) of my LTM lens book! Marc firstname.lastname@example.org FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh bas fir gun ghras fir!
