    [attachmentid=20593]I purchased a Kodak Retina IV in the middle 1960's, carried it all over the world, and use it yet today for its excellent definition and reliability (there are some who might dispute that). I always though a zoom lens for a Retina might be the icing on the cake. Recently, I found that a zoom is possible. The camera is a Retina IV, the lens is a Voigtlander Zoomar 1/2.8 f:36 - 82 mm, and it is mounted on a miniature P&B tripod with a Kodak Model C centering attachment. A commonly found model of this lens is for a Viogtlander Bessamatic. However, a few escaped the factory that are made specifically for Retina Synchro-Compur shutters. An unusual catch that is rather heavy but mass brings inertia and that means handheld stability.

    Thanks for plus opinion. At the moment, there are no pictures with the zoom but here is one of a lovely kitty. She is a Ragdoll and her name is Keiko.
