|35mm Voigtländer Prominent|
The Voigtländer Prominent is a (possibly the first) leaf shutter rangefinder camera featuring interchangeable lenses. It was introduced by German manufacturer Voigtländer in 1950, in competition with Leicas and Contaxes, and withdrawn in 1960.
The replacement Prominent II was introduced in 1958. This had a redesigned top-plate, and the viewfinder had bright-lines for 35,50,100 and 150mm lenses.
