Exakta Varex IIb (Version 6 Exakta VX IIb in USA) is a 35mm film SLR camera manufactured by Ihagee East Germany and produced between 1963-1967. Exakta was an expensive camera used by professionals and serious amateurs. Beginning with the Exakta Varex, the lenses, eye-level pentaprism, and waist-level viewfinders are interchangeable within all versions. Ihagee never made lenses of its own brand for the Exakta cameras.
