Yes the correct frame lines will show up if you buy the appropriate  
adapter. There are three adapters available from a number of vendors.  
They are for the lens pairs 28/90, 35/135 and 50/75. You can of  
course find adapters made by Leica for a premium or get the very good  
adapters that Steve Gandy sells at or the Voigtlander  
branded adapters from vendors like B&H. Stay away from the el cheapo  
generics. They might be OK but why take a chance.
