My friend just modified one to Leica M mount just using an LTM to M adapter 
fixed to its back with 4 screws. After shimming it about 1mm, it focusses 
perfectly to infinity even wide open? and with the front water-tight 
bubble.?Having no?focussing cam, zone focussing was used and still works

What happens when you try to use a 20mm nikonos lens? on dry land?

I realize angle of view is different and focus scale is off.

Will it focus at infinity?
