    You have my sympathy,

    I have lots of things, but not one of those shutters!

    My latest "accidental aquisition" is a Voigtländer WZ...

    Pardon my ignorance and laziness (didn't try searching), but what is a WZ?

    Cheers,

    Good question...

    It's apparently an abbreviation for "Weichzeichner" meaning "soft". It's a simple "periskop" type lens - two simple meniscus leneses symmetrically placed around the stop. The aperture is marked in millimeters, not f-stops. It may have been made as an enlarger lens, although it's hard to understand why anyone would want a soft enlarger lens?
    Anyway I'm going to try doing portraits with it...
