|This is the Summicron 50/2 1-cam lens|
|Here you can see that there is one cam only.
First, we have to unscrew the black shroud, I usually turn the lens upside down when the screw is going to fall.
|I use the plastic tool to lift the black shroud, so there is no risk to touch the glass with the fingers..|
|Now we can remove it.|
|Remove the screws of the Leica-R mount.
|And lift it, pay attention where the small bearing ball is, many times stays glued to the mount , like in this picture.|
|It is best to put a bit of grease in the hole where the small ball goes. These are old lenses and there is little original grease remaining.|
|Now put the ball in place.|
|And we can install the special Leitax mount for 1-cam lenses.|
The red dot goes near the center of the lens scale.
Use the same screws of the Leica mount.
|Ready, now we can use Leica 1-cam lenses on our reflex camera.|
