The Paxette II series was launched in 1953 and went through several variations until 1958. Mine is a later IIM model made after 1954 with an uncoupled rangefinder, no meter and rapid advance lever. It has an interchangeable lens with my example carrying a fast 45mm example. It’s very compact even for a 35mm camera – but it is very solid. I have found it easy to use, although the rangefinder image and viewfinder are a little on the small size. See my photos made with the Paxette IIM.
