the Nikon-N 50mm f1.1 come in two flavours: internal/external mount.

Which one is easier to adapt on a modern Nikon Z? Is is possible to adapt it on a Leica M as well in your opinion?

By the way, I have successfully adapted the rangefinder lens Nikon 35mm f1.8 with a very cheap adapter. This one has an external mount, correct?

Thank you

the external mount is the easiest and safest one to adapt. just get an adapter thats just made for external mount without the internal coupler :o :o :o

You save yourself of a lot of trouble by using the 5cm lens with external bayonet.

Cheap Nikon(RF) - Z adapters are readily available.
