    I just picked up a few cool looking lenses, but need a bit more info on the mount so I get the right adapter. The lenses that came into my possession are Schneider-Kreuznach lenses made for a Kodak Retina camera. I know the mount is called a DKL mount, but I also see that there is a Voigtlander DKL mount. What I can't seem to figure out is if they are the exact same things or if there is some small variation which should preclude me from buying an adapter for a Voigtlander DKL mount for these Kodak DKL mount lenses.

    I see an adapter for Kodak to Fuji X-mount here for $60...... http://www.fotodioxpro.com/fotodiox...amera-bodies-such-as-x-pro1-x-e1-x-m1-x-.html

    But if this one that is for a Voigtlander DKL to Fuji x mount for $30 will work....... http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/281489993121?lpid=82

    Thanks in advance for your time and sharing your knowledge.

    Or should I quit playing with beautiful old lenses and sell them for a profit to a wealthier, more talented photographer.
