The following is copied from my page for the Schneider lensed version:

 

                    (1954 advert for the standard S-K Radionar lensed version)

Note: this advert helps us date other cameras as it tells us that the Prontor SVS shutter is introduced in 1954.

This price comparison refers to Radionar version. It is not known whether there was a price difference when fitted with the Rodenstock lens.

Cameras dated from their Schneider-Kreuznach serial nos.
