The Vito B version with the larger viewfinder was produced between 1957-1960. The serial number on my lens starts with 479 which dates my camera to 1958. Although some folks claim the earlier smaller-finder models are more aesthetically pleasing, this model has a large, bright viewfinder with framing lines and parallax correction.

The camera is a lovely shape to hold and the film winder and shutter both have very positive actions. Exposure and focus are down to the user. See my photos made with the Vito B.
