R3 lenses on a old Leicaflex

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Leica Photography : One Thread

I purchased 2 leica's, an old leicaflex first type/first model

and a R3 with sumicron-r 2/50mm

a elmarit-R 1:2.8/135

a 35/70 3.5

I think there is no problem using all this lenses on the R3 what about the old leicaflex

Should be no problem as long as the lenses have the Leicaflex metering cams.

O.K. as long as the lenses are 'THREE CAM' and not the later 'THIRD CAM ONLY'. If the lenses are engraved 'FOR LEICA R' then they will not work. Regards, David
