fast 35mm f/1.2 wide-angle lens. It's aspherical design has been created to minimize distortion which is very common place among
wide-angle lenses, while the lens barrel is all-metal construction and it encompasses a 12-blade aperture diaphragm to create very pleasant out-of-focus bokeh highlights. The complete rangefinder coupling is preserved, while the aperture ring is complete with click stops occurring at half-stop interruptions.

Bessa R-2 and Bessa T cameras, along with the in demand

M Mount Adapters
The Leica M mount was introduced in 1954 at the same time as the Leica M3. It's been the mount of choice on every Leica M series thru the present day Leica M7 film camera and Leica M9 digital camera
The M Mount was also the mount used for Minolta's CLE rangefinder, on the Konica Hexar RF, on the later versions of the Voigtlander Bessa family
and Lenses, the mount for the Rollei 35RF, also quite recently on the newest Zeiss Ikon

Benefits of Lens adapters is versatility, and saving money with the continued use of the preferred lenses you already own.
Drawbacks of lens adapters is the inconvenience, no electronic connection between the adapted lens and your camera body
A couple of factors are necessary for a lens adapter to work properly. First, the camera body "lens registration" space or the expanse between the mount of the lens to the sensor or film surface. Two, the "throat size" of the mount or the mount diameter. An adapter flanked by the body of the camera and a lens from different brands, this registration distance of the adapted lens must be larger than the registration distance on the body; plus the lenses throat-size must be less than the throat size on the body mount.
M lenses can be adapted to Canon EOS, Nikon, Micro Four
Thirds, and Sony Nex Cameras.
