If that one on cornell.edu is no longer available, here's one on camera-wiki

I'll ask Fred if he can insert a new, second post for addendum, just before the first reply by @philber . This could be used to update expired links, and maybe provide a Table of Contents, with links to within the thread. I don't think it's realistic to expect Fred to maintain the TOC/Updates post (if it can be inserted), but there must be a way to allow edit-access to one or, preferably, a few members. I'd be happy to contribute some time to this. I'll send a PM to Fred about this, and report back if he has a chance to address it.

M39 is by far the most confusing mounts it has been used for everything, so you need to research this mount if you intend to buy a lens that has it to confirm its of the flavour you want.
M39 Enlarger lenses, they have no spicific register, the back focus is approximately its focal length.
M39 [45.2mm] aka Z39(Zenit) (Silver Helios 44, Industar 50 thin version) very close to M42 register(M42 = 45.46mm).
M39 [28.8mm] aka L39, aka LTM, aka L mount, aka LSM, (Leica, Canon, Voigtlander, etc... Industar 50 tall version) (M39x1 / 26tpi, depends on the origin).
M39 BelOMO Chaika-II (Industar 69)(Half frame) it has a unique register slightly less than LTM, and requires modification to reach infinity on LTM adapters. Search Industar 69 infinity mod if you buy one. http://vintagecameralab.com/belomo-chaika-ii-anniversary/
M39 Paxette

Which is which? Both are Industar 50's, left is Z39(SLR), right is LTM(Rangefinder)

http://forum.mflenses.com/industar-50-5cm-red-p-f3-5-leica-screw-l39-sony-nex-m39-t39927.html


Other than that, the bulk of lens mounts are relatively straight forward, with the mount swappable mounts being a bit more complex.

Thought some may find this useful to post here.

Basically all modern macro lenses drop focal length when they go to 1:1. Here are some examples:

Canon 100 f/2.8L - drops to 75mm
Nikon 105 f/2.8 G VR - drops to 78.5mm (25% drop)
Sony 90 f/2.8 G - drops to 70mm (22% drop)
Leica R 100 f/2.8 APO - drops to 75mm with elpro 1:1 adapter (no drop at 1:2)
Voigtlander 125 f/2.5 APO - drops to 95mm (24% drop)
Voigtlander 110 f/2.5 APO - drops to 87.5 (20% drop)
Zeiss Milvus (or ZE/ZF) - drops to only 97mm at 1:2 (when lenses only go to 1:2 we tend to not see them drop

Came across a nice graphic that illustrates angle of view. I just noticed that the AOV looks off for 35mm-28mm vs 50mm-40mm, and 40mm-35mm, each being 10deg different, 28mm seems way too close to 35mm.





It's source page is worth a look: https://www.casualphotophile.com/2019/04/02/zeiss-flektogon-lens-review/

Yes that jumped straight out at me as being obviously wrong, even before I read your description!

My field experience also shows that 28mm is visibly way much wider than 35mm for sure!

Here's the updated link: http://www.graphics.cornell.edu/~westin/misc/mounts-by-register.html Hmmm, they look identical, mine works and yours doesn't yet I don't see any difference. Clicking your link seems to take me there, but opening it in a new tab brings up an FM notice "The link you have opened does not appear to have originated from this site!"
So this seems to be a FM site issue.

And the author of that list provided a link to his own site: http://stephen-westin.com/misc/mounts-by-register.html
They are slightly different, I haven't looked to see what's different yet. (Samsung NX-M is in one but not the other, Exakta is another).

This one is also useful because it includes other dimensions. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flange_focal_distance
It's in the "Standard Mounts" section.

Hello,

I am thinking of buying a Leica SL2.
I own Zeiss Batis and Voigtlander lenses for Sony A74. Is it possible to adapt the E-mount system to Leica SL?

Thanks for a response.

No.
L-mount has a flange distance of 20mm, E-mount has 18mm.

As others have posted, no. You can however, adapt Voitgtlander M-mount lenses to the SL2 and there is a rather large selection of L-Mount lenses both AF and MF.

I think that's an error in the diagram:

35mm = 65*
28mm = 75*
24mm = 83*

Obviously, if you look at the degree values, the field of view for 75* should be about midway between 65* and 83*, but the diagram doesn't show that. If the table is right then the diagram is wrong, and 28mm needs to be drawn wider.
