φ39mm screw mount

Uses a φ39mm screw mount, which is a universal mount that appeared in the 20th century. You can enjoy shooting by attaching it to a rangefinder camera of the same standard in the east and west. In addition, by using a commercially available L / M adapter ring * 1 together, it is possible to display a 50 mm or 35 mm bright frame when attached to a rangefinder camera equipped with an automatic shooting frame switching function.


Compact & high performance

By adopting an aspherical lens, it demonstrates excellent optical performance even when the aperture is wide open. The total length of the product is 21.2 mm (from the mount surface), there is little vignetting of the shooting frame when using the rangefinder, and handling is also good.


Two types of exterior to choose from

The exterior is made of brass and comes in two types: silver and black paint. For black paint, the mount is finished in black * 1 , and the focus lock button, focus lever, and infinite / short-distance stopper are nickel-plated to add an accent to the design.


Dedicated hood included

It comes with an aluminum exclusive screw-in hood and an aluminum cover-type front cap, considering not only the light-shielding performance but also the design with the lens body. (The black paint type comes with a painted hood and front cap.)


Manual focus for reliable focus operation

By adopting an all-metal helicoid unit processed and adjusted with high precision and high-quality grease that produces appropriate torque, focusing with a smooth operation feeling is realized. It enables fine focus adjustment.


Equipped with a rangefinder interlocking system

The high-precision rangefinder interlocking mechanism enables severe focusing near the maximum aperture. The shortest shooting distance linked to the rangefinder is 0.7m.


Full size image circle

We have secured a generous image circle that supports full-frame 35mm format. In addition, it achieves a very compact style compared to interchangeable lenses for single-lens reflex cameras.


* 1 φ39mm screw type universal mount. Please note that it is different from the bayonet type L mount used by Leica, Sigma, Panasonic and Lights Cinelens.

* 2 Please note that the warranty does not cover accidents or malfunctions of the camera / adapter / lens caused by the adapter when combined with a mount adapter made by another company, and we are not responsible for it
