    I have a Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f1.5 lens for sale. Its a Leica 39mm screw mount and I'll sell it with adapters for both Nex and m43. It comes with a small screw on hood and a press on cap that fits over the hood. As well as a rear lens cap.

    I bought this new about a year ago and have used it only a handful of times. Its in absolutely perfect condition. They've been discontinued and I've seen a new old stock advertised for $699 but haven't seen any used ones with this mount (I saw one with a Nikon mount). I'll sell this one for $400 with both adapters, shipped in CONUS.

    Here's a Steve Huff review of this lens, FWIW: http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2010/02/04/voigtlander-nokton-50-1-5-lens-review-by-james-klotz/

    Thanks for looking,

    I have this lens and I use it on my Bessa R2, it's absolutely fantastic. I totally would have bought it for this price. I paid more for one in slightly worse cosmetic condition (optically excellent though)

    You'll need an LTM to M mount adapter and then M to m4/3 or NEX to use it.

    I don't understand why two adapters would be needed. Why wouldn't a LTM to m43 adapter suffice? What am I missing?

    No, you only need one adapter for each camera. There are adapters for straight screw mount to both m43 and to Nex (Sony e-mount). I'm including both with the lens. And I've used both successfully, so if you really need two, I'm doing it wrong but my photos have come out shockingly well! :cool:
