Prominent Nokton 50mm f1.5 Original adapter for Leica Screw?



Hi, I just bumped on this picture while I'm searching for Leica adapter to use my Prominent Nokton adpater. Anyone can recognize this type of adapter? It looks different from MS-optics and any other adapters of these days.

Thanks in advance.

Amedeo makes an Prominent adapter to Contax S. Then, I use an adapter for Contact S to Leica M.
I am not sure that it is like what is shown in your image.

This lens is one of my alltime favorite lenses. It can draw beautifully.

Indeed, I sold my CV adapter long time ago and that was my alltime dumb thing.

I have an adapter which I don't remember where it came from which allows me to use the original (Prominent) Nokton on my Contax IIA. I also have an Amedeo adapter which allows Contax RF mount lenses to be mounted on Leica M mount, so the Nokton can be mounted to my Bessa 2 and also to my dearly departed and once owned, M3 and M4-P.

Makes due in comparison to the rare & $$$ LTM Nokton of which I'll never own.

This adapter is available from a few days ago, will let you use 50mm Prominent lenses as Nokton or Ultron to Leica M mount bodies. Still must refine the design, but users report that work well with their lenses.

Your adapter works very well, Amedeo.

One desirable feature not often seen in such prominent-ltm/M adapter is to allow a non-rotating travel during focusing (lens not rotating). This enables the original 310/47 or 310/49 semi-rectangular hood to be used.

I can confirm that the Kipon prominent-ltm adapter sold on various sites does not allow non-rotating travel. However, the Kipon adapter allows RF coupling to be adjusted.

FWIW, I have purchased Amedeo’s adapter to mount Prominent Nokton on Contax. I have to say, focus is spot on mounted on Contax and on Leica M3, using Amedeo’s Contax to M adapter. Thank you, Amedeo, for making great products of wonderful quality. Bravo!

Looks great! Where I can buy it from? I can't see your adapters on Evil bay.
