  1. Welcome to February 1959.
    This first article is from U.S. Camera magazine. It is a nice presentation of 35mm cameras available in the USA in early 1959.

  10. I had the Aires IIIL. Very sharp lens on that one, and it focused to 20 inches or so. It was cursed with the LVS system which locked the aperture and shutter speed rings together.
    Whoever bought the Nikon S3 or SP would still be happy today. Didn't the Nikon F come out a few months later?
