I'm pretty sure that the flange-film plane depth greater for the Leica (by
around half a mm for nikon/leica), which is why Leitax type conversions work
without a secondary lens. ie, the bayonet would just sit half a mm further
out than the F mount.

So theoretically it would work, however I'd hate to think what you'd have to
do with all of the lens electrical contacts and the screwdriver focus...
