A 4/3 and µ4/3 forum with people interested in alt lenses was irresistible - so I signed up.
I hope I can get help with this question before shelling out the money for the lens just to find out it won't work...
Here I quote Mr Milich from another place:
I am planning for some more lenses for my G1, one of them the Voigtländer 35/1.2 Nokton.in both cases, there are limits regarding the diameter and amount of protrusion of rear elements from the base flange on the lens. In general, the largest diameter that will clear the electrical contacts in the body is 1.17" (about 29.5mm). the most it can extend is .57 (14.5mm) from the base flange of the LTM lens, or .53 (13.4mm) from the base flange of the M lens.
the very largest diameter that will pass the hole in the adapter is 1.40" (35.3mm) and it can only extend .150: (3.7mm). if it extended farther, it would contact the ends of the electrical contacts.
Is there anyone having the CV35/1.2 knowing if it will break the limits as mentioned by Milich above?
Are there lenses "we" know of that won't work?
