    my new lens arrived last week.
    I was anxious to use it, but had to wait for the M39 to Nikon adapter, which came in today.

    This lens is designed for use on a Visoflex, but I adapt it by using my Nikon PB-4 bellows. Bellows or extension tubes are mandatory, even for infinity focus.

    Here's how the combo looks :



    You'll find samples from the first shoot here :

    Congratulation ! This is a very good lens giving unique softness to image taken, even among Leica glasses, when aperture is wide open. This lens is optically identical to 120mm f/2.5 projection lens, four element triplet, of 1948 and was suggested by well known photographer Walther Benser to Leica for adapting as Visoflex lens.

    I have a similar lens but I use "Leica manufactured Visoflex to R adapter", "Novoflex manufactured R to M adapter" and "Leica M to Micro 4/3 adapter" in series.
