Would a Leicina lens work on the Epson R-D1?

S. Dimitrov
If I remember correctly, Leicina has an M mount, meaning that M lenses work 
on it.   But the true Lecina lenses are designed for the much smaller 8mm 
frame, thus the circle would cause vignetting on the RD.  The Leicina lenes 
9mm and 15mm and there were some zooms with about the same range.  They 
mount, but I don't think they had aperture adjustment. I may be wrong on that
