"The Ultramatic CS is a 35mm leaf shutter SLR made by Voigtländer in 1965. It was the first such camera with TTL metering."

Hang on a moment. Wasn't the Topcon Uni - a leaf shutter SLR made in 1964 the first with TTL metering?

When you read this article : then the Topcon RE Super was even a year earlier (1963).
Well, maybe the Ultramatic CS was the first such German made camera ?

Ah ... but the RE Super had a focal plane shutter. I wasn't sure if I was missing something, because the Camera-Wiki Ultramatic text doesn't say it was the first but "first such camera". Maybe it's just a case of clumsy wording? Definitely wasn't the first. I'll correct the text if no one comes up with an explanation. PS: that article you refer to ... I wrote it!

You wrote that article ? Haha, that's a good one, learns oneself to always look a bit further ! Sure, you can adapt the Ultramatic article if you want. Hanskerensky (talk) 03:52, 19 March 2016 (CDT)

I'll get on to it later, and do a bit of checking first. Anyway, you made me grin. The world is such a vast place, and then suddenly, for a moment, it becomes tiny.
