The British-made Agiflex II, a direct descendent of the German Reflex-Korell single lens reflex, was produced by Agilux in Croydon from around 1949. They have interchangeable lenses – mine came with the standard 80mm f/3.5 and a 160mm f/5.5 telephoto. It has a waist-level finder which is quite dim and difficult to see the image, particularly in bright sunlight. And it’s a heavy beast! But it produced some good results. See my photos made with the Agiflex II.
