Ihagee Exa Ia and VX100

The Exa Ia was similar to the Exa I, but was given a lever advance for the film, replacing the knob wind found on the original Exas and Exa I models. This model still shared finders with the Exakta line. Serial numbers ran from 200,000 to 440,000, duplicating numbers used in the original Exa serial number range, and possibly overlapping numbers used by the Exa II. 

When VEB Pentacon acquired Ihagee, they marketed the Exa Ia as the VX100.
