    Adapter Question

    First off, hello! Just joined the forum, it is nice to have another resource! This is my 1st post

    So, just bought a little x-mas present for myself, a G1. I have a small collection of CV and Leica lenses. Some are LTM mount, some M. The LTM lenses already have adapters making them M mount (mostly JM adapters). Would I be ok using an M to G1 adapter for all lenses? In other words, is there any problem doubling up on adapters to achieve a fit, or am I going to need to buy a separate LTM and M mount adapters?

    Thanks and happy holidays!

    James,
    Welcome to the forum. This is a really nice place to hang out.
    I asked this question to John Milich and he said that the G1 to M adapter will work on our LTM lenses that have LTM to M adapters on them. (However, I do not have an M to G1 adapter to try this out yet.) I just got an LTM to G1 adapter yesterday from John and will am looking forward to his M to G! adapter.

    I have tried an LTM adapter on the Novoflex, works fine. Any adapter that is properly engineered for M lenses, will also work with the usual LTM adapters and LTM lenses.
