Went to my tech today to leave a lens. He showed me this Wenka camera which he had in for a minor repair. I had never heard of Wenka before so I took a couple of pictures with the cell phone to show it here. Made in Nürnberg, it said. Maybe some member can tell us something about it.
It is a rangefinder, and it has a 36mm wide angle lens, a Westar f/3.5, made by "Opt. Werke Göttingen GmbH". Yes, that's correct, 36 mm not 35.
The lenses are threaded, but not to the L39 standard. It has a focal plane shutter, that looked like metal to me. The RF is the tiny round window in the front right.
