Re: Take a drill and a deep breath.... mounting a Zeiss with Leitax

A re-thread is not needed. I drilled out the (head of the) screw from the old Contax/Yashica mount and replaced the whole thing with a pristine Pentax mount. The remaining base of the lens still has the original thread so the only thing I have to do is order a new screw (did that yesterday).

A comparison with my FA35/F2 coming soon.
