This is an automatic exposure version of the Agfaflex, also called Ambiflex. 
I have an Agfaflex with the Solagon normal lens and thre Ambion 35mm 
wideangle.  It is a fine camera with very high quality lenses.  I don't use 
mine enough, but your question may inspire me to get it out...  Agfas in 
general are underrated and undervalued, in my opinion.
