Diopter Lens Adapter for M bodies

Luis Rives , Apr 06, 2012; 09:00 p.m.

In the early eighties I purchased from Lee Beeder Camera in LA an eyepiece adapter that accepted Nikon diopter lenses. The adapter then threaded into the viewfinder lens on the M body. Lee Beeder is no longer in business, so does anyone know whether an adapter like this is available from another manufacturer? Thank you for your info.

I'm sure SK Grimes could machine one. But it might be cheaper to pay the extra cost for the genuine Leica diopters.

Luis,
I have a -.5 Leica diopter. Could you use that one?

I second the motion. Get the Leica diopter. The Zeiss-Ikon (ZM) and all Voigtlander cameras can take Nikon diopters.

Don Goldberg sent me a small threaded frame into which I had my optician cut and glue a glass lens. It was on my M3 and now is on my M6. If you can get something of the kind, I shall be happy to have a lens fitted in it.

Fred, I need a -4, which is what the nikon lens on the Beeder adapter holds, or a -3, such as the Leica one that I purchased about 4 months ago. I was expensive, $95, but I suspect that I could not have something made for less than that. I need another one and may just have to buy the Leica type, in spite of the price.
