Angenieux were the first (1950s) series manufacturers of retrofocus designs 
and they made them available for LTM, such as their 35mm lens and later a 
28mm I believe. Quite rare though. Later on (early/mid sixties) Komura also 
made LTM lenses in retrofocus designs, such as their 35/2.5, again, I 
suspect the design was primarily for SLRs and they accomodated them to LTM
