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 am posting this here and in the Collectors and Historica section of the Forum. I will give a Zoom presentation for the LHSA at 7.30 pm, British Summer Time, 2.30pm EDT, on 19th August 2020 about 'Choosing and Using Old Leicas'. A link to register for the talk, which is free for LHSA - The International Leica Society – members, is here.

       The talk , while mainly aimed at those with smaller collections and photographers who want to have one or two old or vintage Leica cameras to use, will also be of interest to more experienced collectors and users.
       ‘Old Leicas’ will include LTM and M models from 1925 up to and including the M6. I will present Leicas from different generations in groups of 3 and will indicate my own personal favourites, which should give rise to varied opinions in the discussion afterwards.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! I will indicate some of my favourite films. I will also give tips about using older Leica cameras, in particular about the question of loading LTM models and film trimming in advance of loading.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! I will describe various accessories for Leica cameras and their uses such as viewfinders, lens hoods, winders, cases, close-up equipment and filters.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden! The response to this has been very good, with 135 members from many different countries registered as of yesterday, indicating the increasing interest in vintage Leicas and film photography generally. There are still a number of places available. We hope to have some time for questions and answers afterwards. I hope to see some forum members online as I know that quite a few here are LHSA members.
