Apparently, they used Nikon lenses right after Canon was formed?

Nikon made Leica screw mount lenses for a while, think they stopped in
the early '60s. Canon had their own lenses but they used the Leica
mount, though the Canon has some differences, a fraction of a
millimeter difference in mount to film difference. So this is where it
may seem that Canons used Nikon lenses. I have a 1959 Nikon 85mm f2 I
still use, on a Leica M2 know the date because I bought it from the
original owner.
