    2-3 days if UPS and SHGMB do their part. The ring which binds them all, AKA Canon FD 'B' adapter awaits in the Pelican's beak. I've had the adapter for several years but never signs of that Canon lens until yesterday.

    On an M9 or film body it projects a full circle. We will see what it does on the M8. Oh, M9, where art thou?

    Canon 7.5 Fisheye on M8

    The Key a Canon "B" FD to Leica screwmount (LTM) to which a Leica LTM to M-mount is fitted.



    Right side of 7.5 showing selector for built-in filters. The chrome base identifies the 7.5 as an early S.S.C. model. Note the lack of a focus ring, Canon decided the depth of field was so great it did not need focusing on the Canon SLR.



    Left side



    Images Just before the rains came:






    Tomorrow will shoot some FF with the M7 and the IIIG.
