    Well, depending on which part of Istanbul he lives in, he may be in Asia!

    Mustafa can say what he wants about Toyota, but I have a Toyota pickup(Tacoma) with over 320,000 miles on it and it never broke down.

    Some people are very attached to their tools. I have known woodworkers who refused to handle any handsaw but a Disston, though many other saws were as nice. But in some ways the quality of our own work is heavily reliant on our confidence with our tools. In Mustafa's case he is very confident with his Leica cameras and lenses. It would sure be nice to see some of his work.

    My reason for asking the question in the first place was because I saw a very interesting 28mm F1.9 Voigtlander lens that was listed as Leica Screwmount (M42). I then thought to myself "oh wow! Pentax uses M42 also!" and since I have an M42 to Pentax K adaptor, I thought I'd ask the question.

    I do like Pentax lenses for when I use the Pentax system (I'm kind of intermixing Pentax and my main system of Nikon right now) and just wanted to see what other possibilities there are, notably in the fast wide angle arena. I could either fix my Nikon 24mm F2 Ai, see if I can purchase a Pentax 20mm F2.8mm or see what other options there are. But the fast Voigtlander lens caught my eye when I saw it listed at a local camera store. In terms of feasibility, still not entirely sure if mounting a leica screw mount is a feasible.... anyways, we'll see

    Hello,
    Voigtländer (Cosina) does not offer lenses with M 42 x 1 screw mount. Their Leica screw mout lenses have M 39 x 1/26''. The difference is the register: M 42 x 1 has a register of 45,5 mm and Leica screw mount (LTM) has a register of 28,8 mm; so you cannot use LTM lenses neither on M 42 body nor even with adapters (without optical elements) on any other bodies with larger register than 28,8 mm which are nearly all other camera brands. Carl Zeiss has superb modern M 42 x 1 lenses, the Zeiss ZM types.
