| For what it's worth, I've considered having a Noblex over the years, but the Widelux is the child I can't put down. I love the simplicity, the construction, the compact size - It's just so usable. I've found I travel with both the Leica M6 and the Widelux. The Leica has the 21mm Super Angulon, sometimes the 35mm Summicron. When we hit the crowded street markets, out comes the Widelux.
This 50 year old Widelux FV tucks away under a light jacket and never needs batteries. It's come with me to Shanghai, Yunnan, Tokyo numbers of times, Thailand countless times, San Francisco, back streets of Boston, Montreal, Vancouver, Vermont, winter, summer, - I just can't begin to remember the miles, and it's never needed anything except film. The classic sandy-chrome body is in perfect, showroom condition.
