Hello Lluis,

I hope you enjoy another fine camera from the past.  Your examples indicate 
that the Biotar produces nice results.  I had, at one time, a very early 
version of that camera series, which did not have a removable lens.  I can't 
recall why I let it go, but, perhaps my Leica kept calling.  Thanks for 

Does your camera use the Exacta-type lens mount?  I noticed that some of 
them used this mount.
