If you dont have LTM lenses with infinity locks, dont worry any of the CV adapters will work ok.
If you do have lenses with infinity locks then some of these will/may foul the edge of the type II adapter and you will not be able to focus to or from infinity. But a good machine shop should be able to mill on the pads for M8 coding or mill away the mount edge to clear (i.e. not interfere with) an infinity lock. There is a lot of metal removed for the infinity lock...
Ive only got early CV adapters and some are suitable and some not suitable for infinity lock lenses, a pain if they foul cause Ive not tried to see if the foul or not, bound to happen away from home...
My Nikkor 5cm HC, Canon 5cm f/1.8 & Canon 28mm f/2.8 (to hand) all clear the unmilled adapter e.g. type II but the elmar clones might not do. The Nikon and Canons all have locks that are some way forward of the LTM registration plane.
