That said the Brits use tea to cure almost everything!!
I have a opportunity to purchase a super Ikonta 532 /16 at a good price.
I really don't need another camera but!!

Default Folders !

I now have Many 'Folders' and USE them in rotation. the BEST LENS is the 75mm f3.5 SOLINAR on my 1956 AGFA ISOLETTE III a Gift fro a Widow of a Deceased Club member. Just as sharp as a Rollei Planar ! My First 'Good Camera' in 1953 was a British 'Ensign Selfix 16/2 Mk II with 75mm f3.5 Ross Xpres BUT I had a 'Dog' of a lens! Many years later I was Given an Ensign Selfix Mk I with 75mm f4.5 'ENSAR' an d I got 20x16" prints NO PROBS from that. I also have the Selfix with 'ROSSTAR' now but there is a Bellows Leak . I was given the Zeiss 'Nettar' by Widow of a Deceased Camera Club Mate who I used to help but she sold all his wonderful NIKON Film and DIGITAL gear to Chelmsford Cameras for a pittance!

Peter, I only have one MF folder now and it is an Agfa Isolette II with the 75mm F/3.5 Solinar lens like your III. Wonderful lens and with a Prontor SV shutter going up to 1/300 sec it doesn't struggle in any situation.
It doesn't get as much use as it used to now that I have my Mamiya C3 but when I need something compact and light, it's perfect.
