The Argus Model M is an awesome little camera. Mine has a lens cap, and most of the M's that I have seen have lens caps. The M can be used as a half frame 828, or a full frame, which i I think is a nice feature. The viewfinder is set up so that when using half frame, you use the picture inside of a clear box outlined with green. When using full frame, you include the green outline in your viewfinder. It's kind of hard to explain.
