Exactly.  The Barnack philosophy applied to medium format!

I've got the Bessa II w. Color Heliar, a Bessa 66 with Heliar, a
Perkeo II with Color Skopar, Super Ikonta A, B and C (the latter with
the rare 4.5x 6 mask, an Ansco Titan, a Zenobia, an Agfa Isolette III,
and a Welta Perle w. Xenar.  Had and sold another dozen or so other
medium format folders over the years, but these are all keepers.  I've
got a few 35mm folders, but since the Bessa 66 and Perkeo II are about
the same size as a Vito IIa or a Retina, it doesn't make much sense
for me to use the 35mm folders.
