The general form and dimensions of Comet II are identical to those of Comet S. Some esthetic details (position of the name, disappearance of a small plate of identification replaced by a gravage in the aluminum of the body…) distinguish, but the large difference, it is that on Comet II, the lens (f11) is assembled on an extractable tube. It has a speed (1/30 secondes) and an exposure B, whose selector is strange (see the page of Comet S).
We notice on the photograph, that sleeving falls apart. It is a regular defect of Bencini; undoubtedly due to the bad catch of the adhesives on aluminum.
