Subject: Contax to Leica Adapters

There were a slew of adapters manufactured to permit Contax lenses to be
mounted on LTM bodies, but only the UK one Ed has and the Japanese Orion
were really effective.

It is a LOT easier to buy a Russian LTM lens -- clones of the Zeiss lenses
- -- than to attempt to find one of these converters today.  Or buy a CZJ LTM
lens -- they made a bunch immediately before and during the War, almost all
RF coupled and almost all coated.
