Yes, the shiftable mount is ingenious, and very well done. Voigtlander gives perfect instructions, and includes extra screws. Just superb.

But the shift just puts the shoe-mount in the center of the little meter. That works for the Canon QL-17 iii, but not enough for the Lynx or any camera with the accessory shoe way over to the left by the rewind knob.

Where did all these cameras come from?
