I splutter.  The OZTNO/14088 isn't "commonly" used as anything:  it is a
rather rare piece -- just try to find one to buy!

I suppose it would work as a soft release, but not very well, and I
certainly have never heard of anyone using it as such.  It is much better
at its intended purpose -- adapting LTM gear to M shutter releases.  The
APDOO and OZTNO combination is the factory solution to a self-timer on an
M4-2, M4-P, M6, M1, MD, MDa, or MD-2.  I wrote a piece on this for
VIEWFINDER five years or so back, during Moss's first tenure as editor, but
he never ran it.
