I dont have any Exaktas now, but back in the 70's I did have a Varex, a couple of Exas and the rebadged Praktica - the RTL1000. These pics were taken in 1979 with it and a Sigma 135mm f1.8 lens. I got some great shots with the RTL1000, it was much easier to use than the left handed Varex, and a better shape for my clumsy hands.

On the subject of Exsakta wides; Some time ago I browsed the shelves of a second hand furniture merchant and found a sample of the worlds firstSLR wide; Angenieux retrofocus R1. Could not resist buying: it makes usable snaps. No auto-aperture mechanism so the mount looks different to the Flektogons.
