Dufa Pionyr

Traduction de Tadzio Koelb, USA

The Pionyr resembles a shortened version of the Photax III or IV. Shape aside, the resemblence is obvious: a sloped bakelite body with the shutter release positioned directly above the shutter/lens block. Based on the markings, however, one can assume the Pionyr's optics have little in common with a real MIOM lens.
