Tell Voigtlander to get their act together and keep making these, especially the wide, as I need one.

They look truly useable, compact in the tradition of the old folders. Exciting!

I have the IIIW. It is a fixed lens rangefinder, not a folder.
Very solid, and the lens is incredibly sharp, detailed, contrasty, and shows no linear distortion.

I hear you - in the old days 6x7 made sense because printing paper was 8x10 or 16x20 - now it's 8x11.5, 12x18, and 20x30.

My solution: buy a Mamiya Press - the original version. It's a bit smaller than the 23 and Super.

Take off the handle. Grab the camera by the film back. Trip the shutter release with the middle or ring finger of your right hand. (Or find a Type 3 back, which has the cable release built into the back).

Not as compact the Voightlander, but ... manageable. Ish.
