CV15mm + IR/UV cut filter + firm 1.102

Recommended Posts

against my better judgement perhaps, but I am considering manufacturing from scratch a leica-thread-to-leica-bayonet adapter with machined recesses for self-coding. probalby would sell in the $140 range... it would primarily be designed for the 15mm Voightlander lens and match that as far as flange thickness, frame lines called up, etc.

 

any interest?

Absolutely John

 

I just received the WATE adapter from you and it is brilliant.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

count me on two in 50mm and two for 35mm and maybe another two for 90mm.

 

Would be really great

.

 

Best regards

Boy, it's a long time I said in this forum that if some serious shop starts to work regularly on adapter+coding THERE IS A CERTAIN BUSINESS ! I am on the list, 2 or 3 items..

e mail me for details, but for the record, these adapters will be full flanged but NOT coded, so as to not interfere with potential Leica patents.

I tried to mark the Zeiss 15 like a tri but it is not recognized.

If John can sort out possible legal/patent issues, as he and I have discussed, this would be wonderful. I currently have seven Leitz adapters that were machined by John (non-commercially, for testing purposes only) with indentations (see attached photo) and they are wonderful. I also have the custom WATE adapter and it is beautifully made. One could take care of nearly all the needed screwmount lenses with just two models of adapters.

 

An adapter that is like the Leitz 9 cm can be used with: 28 and 21 mm lenses as well as the CV 15.

 

An adapter that is like the Leitz 13.5 cm can be used with 35 and 24/25 mm lenses.

 

So, together, just those two models would cover 15, 21, 24, 25, 28 and 35 mm lenses and these are crucial focal lengths for coding. Lenses longer than that really do not need to be coded because cyan drift is minimal.

 

I would be thrilled to see that this can go forward. I'm currently testing Leica and CV lenses (with Leica and 486 filters) to see how well the cyan drift is corrected. So far, the results are very encouraging.

 

This would also provide a great potential solution for the many owners of classic Leica screwmount lenses.

 

Cheers,

 

Sean

John,

 

would those adapters have the 6 holes in or at least a recessed zone?

I think that by having just a recessed zone which could be marked by the end user, one could get around any patent infringements.....

John,

 

I'll definately take one off your hands to use with my CV15. Let us all know when/how/where we should send you $$. I've been waiting for someone with Leica knowledge and machining skills to offer this on the forum. Great!

Yes i would also one for my CV15!

How is the deal?

Thanx and greetings from Vienna.

John,

 

I'll take one, too - provided, you can ship to Switzerland.

I am certainly interested in one, although I will stay just short of commitment until you email me, I look in my account and see the money, and the price of shipping to Germany is settled

Please put me on your list and mail me when it gets close. There will be holes for the paint, right?

Forgive me for being late to the conversation, but has anyone experimented with the CV12 to see if coding it as a 16 will reduce some of the vignetting? While not a perfect solution, it might offer a little bit of help. I use my CV12 more than the CV15 and it certainly would be nice to eliminate some of the vignetting.
