Any idea what this adaptor is for?

Hello all,

I have come across an adaptor described as 'Leica Visoflex M39 Lens Pentax 645 Adapter' claiming to allow one to attach these lenses to a Pentax 645. Any idea what the lenses are and how well this works?

Many thanks,

Visoflex was a rangefinder to SLR add-on conversion thingy for Leicas. If you find a lens, which probably isn't very easy, I don't imagine the 35mm image circle would cover 6x7 well.

At least one member has used this adapter on their 645D. The Leica Visoflex lenses appear to have a large enough image circle. I think there are some images from this setup at GetDPI in the Pentax forum and the Fun with 645D thread.
