For years I was a simple SLR amateur photographer - content with my good old reliable Nikkormat FT-2. We were a faithful couple.
A few years ago, enamored of all things technological, I had a brief affair with a Canon G-1 digital P&S.
This led to a "thing" with a Nikon D-70 DSLR - but that fling also left me filled with guilt. The faithful FT-2 cried out in the emotional pain of my neglect for film.
I thought that purchasing a F5 and F100 on eBay would ease the guilt I felt. And then, needing to also fill several residential "love nests" I began to accumulate a F3, an EL, another F-100 plus a couple of more Nikkormats and, oh yes, a venerable F1. Plus numerous appropriate "glass" etc.
Nonetheless, still, I felt a deep "emptiness", as if I was afloat with GAS.
And then, accursed as I am, I discovered RFF and it re-kindled a long ago but buried interest in the "ancient mode" of RF photography. At first I assuaged this growing and gnawing yearning with a few books on the topic (a desparate attempt to use pornography to offset physical need). But such a temporary diversion only led to the inevitable need to engage in true, not just ersatz, lust.
So, being a good Nikonian, I acquired a S2 that came with both 5.0cm and 1.35cm lenses. Not wanting to be ill-equipped for such a "liaison", I quiclkly secured a Bessa R2S as a "spare" and have now accumulated a 28mm CV, and 3.5 Nikkor and a 85mm CV plus various viewfinders, shoe-mount meters etc.
And now I have discovered this:
Is it true that this little honey would allow me to use my Nikkor and compatible CV lenses on a Leica or Lieca-compatible camera body?
Do you know for sure that with this little "love aid" attached to a simple Bessa R2 or R3 I could now in the sweet arms of Leica? And soon thereafter, begin enjoying the charms of her many lenses (not to mention the sweet dalliances with Zeiss etc.)?
I think I am correct that this would be the love potion to a whole new affair - can you tell me otherwise? Please make it so.
Elsewise - I am detecting an extreme case of GAS to which my real life better half might react with extreme prejudice to my continued existence!
