    Kochmann Reflex-Korelle II with CZJ 8cm f/2.8 Tessar. Consensus is these were not designed to work...this one seems to be okay if you can stand a bit of shutter drag.

    The denting was a reference to the Werra camera, which, as far as I know, isn't military issue ;)

    And they're actually quite capable cameras, once you get used to the winding/cocking mechanism :) They do seem prone to getting dented though. Another one from the collection; Bell & Howell Eyemo 71-Z 35mm camera. Used by the USAAF as the A-4 Bombspotting camera. with a B&H 10" f/4.5 Eymax...

    Leica Showcase KMZ 3.5cm F2.8 Jupiter-12 in LTM

    Thanks, no rush though! It does go through the full motion from inifinity to 1m and stops at those points....so I figure it's a bit more complicated than just repositioning the focus ring itself.
