Aero Ektars came as surplus off some aerial cameras and are afaik adapted. So if you find one adapted to LTM or make your own Adapter you are set.

that's why they use this lens still today. But 178 mm on Leica (or full-frame nowadays) is a Little bit too long for such works. If you are shooting 4x5'' it's fine and if you mind the radioacitve glass the Dallmeyer Pentac 1:2.9/8.5 '' is Pretty good, too.

I'm currently trying to adapt one to a GFX. Can't dial in the length of the tubes I need, lol

It is a losing effort. Aerial lenses are just horrible for land-based, small format use.

Oi, if there are still sadly misinformed dreamers of using a Kodak Aero Ektar 178mm, why for just shipping $ I will send one wreck of the lens which will still give an idea of just how useless it is.

      I have too many sweet Summarons...
      So, this one has to go!
      Original screwmount Summaron. Very nice condition, see pics.
      It is the one mounted on the IIIg, Nº1754512
      Focus and aperture perfect. 
      Clean glass, minimal dust, works perfectly.
      Both original caps.
      Finder SBLOO included. It is bright and clean.
      I am in Spain, and every four weeks in Germany. 
      Insured shipping at cost.
      EU sales preferred!
      Spreche auch Deutsch. También hablo Español.
      Good light!!!
