is the Visoflex 14127 adapter to Leica-R cameras.
|It has aperture ring...|
|..that operates this cam, I guess to tell to a Leica-R camera which F-stop is the Visoflex lens using.|
|Let's unscrew the original bayonet.|
|And remove it.|
|Look for the small bearing ball, this time it remained sticked at the bayonet.|
|But we cannot unscrew this cam as usual, because it is made from one piece together with the internal aperture ring.|
|To use this adapter on a Nikon and Sony cameras, we need to remove that cam. |
Pentax and Sigma cameras can use a Leitax bayonet directly.
First, lift the aperture ring.
|Now, unscrew the two fasteners that you can see at those long windows.|
|And lift the internal aperture ring, help yourself with the plastic tool to push it up.|
|Now we can remove this ring.|
|Save all the small parts.|
Now put again the aperture ring in its place and screw a Leitax mount.
Now, without the cam, we can use the standard Leitax bayonet for Nikon and Sony cameras.
Pentax and Sigma users will not need to remove the cam.
