    I agree! Werra is beautiful! My only regret is that I should discover and buy it 30 years earlier. But, from other hand, it's never too late!

    I like their look very much. I had a Werramatic with the 3 lenses once and seriously tried to use it, but unfortunately the ergonomics didn't agree with me and I found doing everything with it very fiddly...

    Adapting other lenses to it should be nearly impossible, unless by an expert machinist and with the limits a previous poster mentioned.

    I do like the look of the Werra cameras, never shot one though. Remind me kinda of the Diax cameras.

    My fav' quirky camera is the Agfa Flexilette TLR for 35mm!

    I have a (what I believe to be) a Werramat that I found in a thrift store for $5. I'm close to getting it working, the closing action of the shutter is hanging up somewhere. I look forward to getting it running and trying it out, it looks like a fun camera.

    Cool. Can you post a photo of it?

    It's in pieces right now, but I'll fit the various pieces together and put up a photo in a day or two when I get a break from work.

    I've got a couple of Werras in the cupboard; one's the original nice-looking green one, and the other's a black one with rangefinder and lightmeter. I never use them; 35mm is such a poky little format.

    You should hook me up with one of the lens
