    Just found this Agfaflex with 50/2.8 & 135/4 lenses. All in near mint
    condition and fully functional. These are one of my favorite old German
    SLRs from the 50s-60s. Agfa also marketed them as the Ambiflex and Colorflex
    in different countries and there was a similar model called the Selectaflex
    that had auto exposure mode. Agfa made 6 lenses for this camera from
    35mm to 180mm. The finder can also be popped out and swapped for a waist
    level finder.

    It's a hefty hunk of gleaming chrome. :)

    WOW! What a beauty. There still are many around n aren't that expensive. Yours looks to be in great condition.

    I saw this saying on another site...

    "The Agfa flex SLR, made in the late 50s,
    is one of the few SLR cameras
    that has the same amount of moving parts and weight
    as a Nimitz class aircraft carrier

    You can get the user manual here... http://www.butkus.org/chinon/agfa/agfaflex_i_ii/agfaflex_i_ii.htm

    Enjoy it!
