This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

LTM->m mount adapter question

An esoteric question for the experts here ...

I have a Voigtlander brand LTM->m mount adapter that I took off a Voigtlander 50mm f1.5

The adapter has "50" and "75" written on it, which I guess means it's meant for those focal lengths.

Is there any reason I wouldn't want to use this adapter on a Voigtlander 15mm to then mount on an m-mount->NEX adapter?

Thanks!

No, no reason. It has to do with what frame lines get called up in the camera's internal finder, and since you'll be using an external finder, you don't care what the camera's built-in finder shows.
