Nice article.  There is one error -- the Heliomar lens on the prewar
Bessa is a dog, not a mid-line Voigtlander lens.  I believe this lens
was used most frequently as the cheaper viewing lens on the
Voigtlander TLRs, which had the better Skopar or Heliar lenses as the
ones used for photography.  The 3 element Vaskar lens is actually not
a bad performer stopped down a bit.  That and the Agfa Apotar are
probably the best bets around in a 3 element lens for a budget folder.
