    I cannot find any thread on this lens, so I thought I give this a shot. Lens is small, light, some considered a pancake. Its an M mount lens. Pictures to follow.

    Sounds rather like Konica's 40mm f1.8, I'm interested to see your results! And a photo in the "show us what your adapted lens looks like" thread :)

    The fotga adapter does not allow me to focus to infinity by just a minute amount. I have to close to aperture to 6.3 to achieve sharpness at infinity.
    This lens, used on my NEX produced nice shots wide open. One of my most used lens on my nex...

    This lens is better known as the Leica C Summicron. A Leica produced lens!!! Knowing this, this was one of my big lens purchases as I typically don't have lots of $$ to spend on camera gear, but the ability to spend $300 to get a $1k priced lens with a different name on it is an easy decision. Beautiful lens.
