Help in dating an old Elmar 13,5 cm

Recommended Posts

The" Korrell" Elmar in an above post reminds me of this conversion I have.  I believe it to adapt the early 135 Elmar to  the Nikon F.  I would have thought there were better lenses of this focal length in the age of the F.

By sure… but an adapter surely costed less than any good lens… B)  (and maybe was a Leica user who wasn't SO sure that reflex was better tha RF… :rolleyes:)

I have a brass adapter to fit a Leica screw lens on a Nikon F, not sure where it came from. I tried it once. As the Leica and Nikon connections go in opposite directions screwing the lens in tries to undo the adaptor to Nikon body connection. Also the Nikon lens register is greater so you do not get infinity focus.

i think this subject may have come up before as posting this seems familiar?
