View Full Version : Jupiter and leica CL
Could I buy a Jupiter 8,9 or 11 50mm and throw it on my cl or do I need a speacil mount? If so where do I by the mount? Thanks
You can buy the Jupiters in Leica Thread Mount and use them with an LTM to M adapter. I've used a J-3 on my Leica CL with the adapter.
The 35mm J12 with bulbous rear element would mess with the meter danglia, right?
undoubtedly, but i believe he was asking about the 50mm ones only
Cameraquest sells M adapters. I have two from www.fedka.com, marginally less expensive but excellent quality.

only for to know: is the "M" rear cap included at the fedka offer?
The J-8 (and J-3) are 50mm; J-9 is 85mm; and J-11 is 135mm.
The J-12 is 35mm, and will not work on a Leica CL- as stated, will jam the metering stick.
No, veraikon, the Fedka adapters do not come with M rear caps.
thanks @payasam for the info. So it both adapters are almost at the same price.
