Subject: [Leica] Contax RF Lens to Leica LTM Body adapter
From: red735i at (Frank Filippone)

OK, I found the adapter I had in a drawer.

It accepts Contax RF Lenses, both 50mm ( No focusing helix!) or External 
Bayonet lenses.  The other side is a male 39mm Leica screw
thread.  It is unmarked but professionally made.

I have no Contax lenses to try this out with.

Does anyone out there want to try an experiment?  The question that must be 
answered, does this adapter allow focusing to infinity
with any Contax lens on a Leica body?

This item is NOT for sale.  I have owned it for maybe 30 years,,,,,maybe 40.
