I bought a nickel 35mm Elmar online and realised upon receipt it has the 11 o'clock infinity lock. I have never seen one before. The first thing I did was to try it out on the M8 with the ltm/m adapter but it didn't work because the adapter cut out was in the wrong place. My IIIc has the slow speed dial so it doesn't work either. So now I'll need to buy a camera to use the lens! So will any Barnack without slow speeds work? I see some bodies have sort of a bump where the slow speed dial should be. Will that interfere with the lens? Will something like a Voigtlander Bessa R work? Thanks.
It is coupled and has the "heavy cam". I have never seen a heavy cam aside from online photos so this is a pretty good day so far! Anyway I already have a III with slow speeds and a IIIc (converted to f) and do not want another Barnark. Do you know if the self time on the Bessa R interferes with the lens? I guess I can have the self timer removed.
