Yes after you posted the models, I think you are in luck. These should all be screw mount. When you go to his house, take the cash and also a ruler (calipers would be better) and measure the screw mount. If it's 42mm then hand him the $75.00 and take some shots of the lenses at your place.

just found this link online which says
"First model of Icarex 35 is based on the earlier Voigtländer design and was launched in 1966 through the collaboration between Voigtländer and Zeiss-Ikon. Icarex 35 S series, like this was introduced in 1968. Two variants BM (bayonet mount) and since 1970 TM (thread mount) were made."
so i will have to measure for sure does anyone have any pics of what the BM (bayonet mount) looks like?

i just found this link aswell http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Icarex

"The special bayonet mount and the limited range of lenses were hampering the Icarex sales, so the two models were released in a modified version accepting 42mm screw lenses. They had a TM badge to distinguish them from the bayonet versions, that remained in production with a BM badge. An Icarex with no BM or TM badge is a bayonet body made before the thread mount version was introduced. "

so it looks like it is going to say it right on the lens.

i just didn't want to buy it and then have no use for it, it is hard to tell my wife that I am buying more glass, and this time it doesn't even fit my camera
Yep. As soon as I saw "wife" the problem was clear. I've been married 25 years. It amazes me how they can squander money left and right on things like mortgage payments, groceries, clothes for the kids; but when we want to buy some REALLY important, like a new toy its a whole different story....................
