Edixa M and MB

Discussion in 'Minox' started by ducthinhngo, Feb 11, 2021.

  1. Hi guys,
    I got a Minox but didn't like it much. Then I got an Edixa 16 MB however it has many problems: film door is hard to close, viewfinder has no coating, etc... After that I got another Edixa 16M in very good condition, but I heard the MB is more desirable because of the film door, will mine develop problem later and I should find another 16 MB instead of this M?
  2. Edixa 16M , 16MB are technically identical, except the MB
    is a black model, looks better. Both has very sharp Schneider Xenar four element lens.
    Both model has lever type film chamber lock, which is
    easier to operate then the disk type lock of Edixa 16
    I have two Edixa 16MB with leather case

  3. Thank you very much. But my 16M has disk type lock and not the lever type of the 16MB. Will this one give me problem later rather than it is hard to turn with fingernails?
  4. If you turn the disc lock all the way until it stop, there
    should be no problem.
    The problem with disc lock is if you turn it half way
    it is not easy to see that it is not fully locked, Unlike
    lever type of lock, it is easy to see whether it is fully

  5. Then this 16M is a keeper for me, I just need to be careful with it and I can let the 16MB go. Thank you very much for your help.
