Old post, but Thanks for this!!!
Voigtlanders are always great to use.
My father was a Zeiss person but Vitos were the go to camera of my uncles (Vito II, Vito CLR)
I have collected several through the years and the II and IIa are my favorites.

Easy to store in the pocket, and the Color-Skopar (4 element) is a great lens (as long as you have a lens hood)
The backdoor is quirky, and I prefer to use it with the half case so that it can't accidentally open

This one had the distance scale unreadable but I was able to get it back to life using high-visibility yellow

Voigtlander Vito II ~1953

Fortunately it came in original box with all accesories

I must admit, I put one roll through my Vito and then put it in the drawer, where it's remained for the last 10+ years.

I have a beautiful Vito BR that my father bought new in 1958. It produced many rolls of family photos.

Glad to hear and welcome to the forum.

Recently bought a Vitoret on a whim, not really knowing much about it. Happy to say it seems to work, but being basic there's not a lot to go wrong (apart from the usual sticky shutter, etc, but it seems to be free of faults).



Followed that up with a Vito CSR, but the rangefinder needs adjusted, so that will be attended to when I get the notion. It's a nice camera in the hand, feels chunky and well made, although those who are more familiar with the 50s and 60s Voigtlander RFs say the earlier ones were better. I'm not bothered, it feels good to me and the meter works, which is nice.

I'll save that poor camera from oblivion Smile
