      Comments about Panasonic DMW-MA2M Leica M Mount Adapter for Leica Lenses and Lumix G Micro System Cameras:

      As usual B&H delivered on time without any carrier charges for custom clearance into Canada. I got this faster than the local dealer who wanted 5 business days.

      I am using the adapter on my Panasonic GH2 for Leica M lenses 50mm and 90 mm circa 1960 purchased at that time. Because of the sensor size they are 100mm and 90mm equivalents. Focusing through the viewfinder is difficult but the LCD display is reasonable. I use the lens depth of field markings to obtain a more accurate focus which was the old fashion way before the advent of electronic focusing.

      I have a few Leitz lenses left over from "back in the day" and this little adaptor lets me use them on my Lumix cameras. Works a treat. Very well made, and should be at the price.

      Comments about Panasonic DMW-MA2M Leica M Mount Adapter for Leica Lenses and Lumix G Micro System Cameras:

      This adapter replaced the disappointing M39 to micro four thirds Dot Line adapter I had bought earlier(see my other review). The Panasonic adapter is of excellent quality and everything fits perfectly. But it is expensive - by comparison the Panasonic four thirds to micro four thirds adapter sells for a more reasonable $, which seems like the right price.Still, I can use my Voigtlaender 75mm f2.5 now, which turns out to be superb on micro four thirds.

        Comments about Panasonic DMW-MA2M Leica M Mount Adapter for Leica Lenses and Lumix G Micro System Cameras:

        If you are using old Leica lenses you'd certainly want to have well-made adaptor to mount them on. The Panasonic is a beautiful little piece and it works perfectly. The only negative I can mention is that the baffle at the rear is made of thin plastic that could be damaged with careless handling. Don't just throw this in you bag to rattle around. It could be kept pristine by having lens caps (or a lens) mounted on it.

                I comparing this Panasonic brand with Voig, Novoflex and also third party from HongKong. This Panasonic Lumix adapter is the best quality for its price tag. Less expensive than Novoflex. I normally put Zeiss ZM (Leica M-mount) to Olympus E-P3 along with this adapter at no problem. Very precise. I recommended for shooter who love Ziess lens on M4/3 format camera.

                  This well crafted adapter fits like a glove. Original parts cost more but are worth it compared to aftermarket copy cats. With my new prime Leica lens, the Panasonic GF1 comes alive. The combination of the lens, the camera body and this adapter make for a fantastic small fully manual camera. It allows one to get into synch with photography. I highly recommend it.

                    I have a Leica M-6 with several Carl Zeiss Lenses and of course, the Leica is a manual rangefinder film camera but now I have a viable alternative to using the lenses on a digital body. As you well know Leica and Panasonic have a strategic partnership in point-n-shoot cameras and instead of buying a $6,000 M9 Leica, you can now use your lenses in your micro 4/3 system. The only drawback is the 2x cropping factor wherein my 21mm lens becomes a 42mm telephoto lens but since I am using it for landscape photography, I welcome the multiplier.

                        This converter works very well. Has a solid feel and a sturdy button to push to mount and un-mount the Leica lenses. Have used it on a G2 with Leica Noctilux, 90 Summicron, Voigtlander 12mm and other Leica M lenses. All work excellently. I am very happy with not only the adapter, but the Leica lenses on the G2.
