This is the original Leicaflex. It is not top tech (yes, really!) but feels great in the hand and has an amazingly fast shutter response. I think that the short lag was one of the selling features of the camera back in the day. The focusing screen is also very bright. The construction is fully Leica. One note is that I cannot discover a way to turn the light meter off so to do so I remove the battery. This camera is in good condition and works well. The shutter and meter are accurate. There is a name engraved on the base lightly but that is the only significant defect.
