The only lenses you need to sometimes futz with are M42's (screwmounts, they need an adapter), some old vintage stuff with oversized aperture lever shields, and lenses marked "KR" as they could have something known as the "Ricoh pin" which is easily removed or otherwise dealt with if you run across one.
