    I bought a jupiter 8m off eBay, and a L39 to m4/3 adapter. The lens came and it doesn't fit the adapter. Does anyone know which adapter I need?

    Hmmm. I keep messing this up. Got this lens adapter off eBay. Way too big. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1388347469.937197.

    I just found out that this adapter works great for my makinon 80-200. So that is good. :)

    Your lens was made for a Kiev Contax "copy". It fits the internal bayonet and uses the built in helical and focusing wheel.

    So, you need an adapter for Contax rangefinder inner bayonet fit. The only one a quick search throws up is the Kipon advanced adapter at $220 but there may be others if you dig a bit. They're expensive because they contain the focussing mechanism.

    Thanks for the help. Would this work with the lens I have? ImageUploadedByTapatalk1388348461.888968.

    No probs. Contax/Kiev rangefinders are strange and wonderful things but they are confusing with two lens mounts in one camera.
