Minox AX

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MINOX FAQ : One Thread

Can anyone give informations about the AX model ? Lens quality,relability being mechanical,.Is it only a collector item or can it really works. I am interested by the manual speed setting up to B. Does it have the filter as the TLX ? Does it make sense for you to buy it ??I have already a TLX but i want a second Minox... Many Thanks philippe

Minox AX is a remake of Minox IIIs, but with TLX style dial. All the settings are the same. The lens is a MINOX lens just like the TLX. AX It only ND filter. You will be better off to get a Minox IIIs, or Minox B.

Was there ever a black AX? I've just noticed an advertisement for one.

Philippe, yes there was a limited edition of the Black AX. Both Chrome AX and Black AX are limited editions and as Martin says, a revamp of the IIIs, produced more with collectors in mind rather than users.

Best, Duncan.
