Hi Gianfranco – I had a set of Leica-R lenses and got them adapted to EF mount. Initially I started with the Fotodiox adapters, which are pretty cheap, but after awhile I ordered the ones from Leitax, which are more expensive but much better. The Leitax mounts are hard mounts meaning you take off the original Leica mount and install these instead. Since they’re hard mounted to the lens they don’t have play the way that traditional adapters do. It’s probably best to have them installed by a lens service professional, although Leitax has instructions on how to do it on their website. Good luck! – R
Thank you for the detailed info! The adapter + shipping is going to be around 100$, I will first try a cheaper solution and see if the play of the lens is too much. Maybe I’ll try to modify the standard Fotodiox to fix it to the lens, in the same way it’s done with the Leitax adapter… but I’ll need to find the longer screws.
Keep up the good work and thanks again for your help.
I really like this community and I hope I would be able to give back soon.
