Fisheye for M or LTM?

Is there one available? Been looking but can't seem to find any info.

As far as I know this simply doesn't exist. It is more SLR terrirory, I would say. There are (used to be?) screw-in fisheye-converters that might work. There are no viewfinders for that, however.

Nikon-to-Leica adapters are quite common; they are not expensive to have made. Mine was by SRB of Luton. Then use any Nikon-fit fisheye. For a viewfinder, try a door viewer. Or guess.

Cheers,

Roger

Thanks guys. I'm aware of the Nikon adapters but thought there might be a chance that a dedicated M or LTM fisheye would be available. Will probably pick up the Nikon adapter.

This guy is selling a russian fisheye 16mm zenitar. http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=143055
I'm not too sure about how's the quality of the lens but worth a look if you're interested. I could even go down to take a look at the lens and post up a picture if you would want.

You can mount either one of the Canon FD fisheyes (7.5mm circular) or 15mm (full frame) on a Leica LTM by using Canon's lens mount converter B. Combine that with a LTM to M adaptor, and you can then mount these lenses on a Leica M.

The 16mm Zenitar M42 mount with an M42/LTM adaptor works well on a Barnack Leica; I've used this for some time now. Presumably ithis would work as well on an M Leica by adding an M/LTM adaptor.

As was suggested by an earlier contributor, I use a (Home Depot) fisheye door peephole, masked with black tape, as a viewfinder.

See Stephen's link to the Voigtlander 12mm or 15 mm below. I don't believe they are RF-coupled. The only one I know that is RF-coupled is the canon 19mm f3.5 in LTM.

So the 7.5mm is basically not useable on my iii?

It is not «not useable» [sic], if you accept certain limitations; Raid gave you a completely correct answer:
