Argus RF Forum for Argus RF nuts. The American made Argus C-3 may be the most prolific rangefinder, with over 3 million cameras produced! While American RF nutz of the 1950's may have yearned for a Leica, Zeiss, Canon or Nikon, most of them used an Argus !

I had an Argus C3 back in 1957 and got great photos from it but I got very
tired of the viewing and rangefinder windows and sold it.

The one aggravating thing about my kit is that the newer 3.5/50 will not accept the metal cap, as the collar around the front element is taller.

I've got to dig them all out, and count them up, Frank. I think I'm up to nine now.

That's the Soligor 4.5/135. There is another version with bright barrel parts mixed in.
