The Argus C-twenty is another one of my many favorite Argii. Before i actually bought my C-twenty, I had never seen one in real life, just in pictures on the net. From what I saw, I thought it looked like a horrible plastic camera. But when I recieved the camera, It became one of my favorites. It feels very nice in my hands, and it operates how a camera should operate. It has a 44mm lens, which i think is much better than a 50mm, at least for what I photograph, which are mostly landscapes. Overall I would give this camera an  A+
