View Full Version : Nikon AI-S 50mm 1,4 Arsat for Bessa R?
the question is already in the title. can I use that lense with my Bessa R?
thanks a lot.
You can, with a Nikon to M39 adapter (such as those made by Novoflex under the LEINIK label).
It's probably not worth it, though. No rangefinder coupling, which is a real problem at f/1.4, and the adapter is quite expensive. If you had an R2 or better with M mount, you could use the rangefinder-coupled adapters sold by Cameraquest for $300, but these require you to transfer the distance to the lens manually, not to mention that you can get a smaller, directly-coupled Canon 50/1.4 rangefinder lens for $300.

...or a Nikkor 5.0cm/1.4 or any number of 50mm lenses in LTM or M mount.:D
