Product Highlights
  • Adapts Leica R Lens to Sony NEX Camera

One of the most appealing aspects of small mirrorless cameras like the Sony NEX series is the availability of a wide range of interchangeable lenses, including non-Sony lenses. This Novoflex Adapter for Leica R Lens to Sony NEX Camera makes it possible to mount a Leica R lens to your NEX camera with a precision mechanical adapter. Such an adapter does not transfer functions from the camera to the lens, such as auto focus, but automatic exposure metering (stop-down metering/aperture priority) is possible. The lens will focus to infinity using this adapter.

          Comments about Novoflex Adapter for Leica R Lens to Sony NEX Camera:

          The purpose I buy this adapter is to mount my Leica R lenses onto A7R. Compared with some low price adapters I once bought before, this one is really made in high precision. You could feel this while putting lenses onto it or taking the lenses off from it. Plus A7R enlargement manual focusing function, focusing becomes a wonderful feeling and the result is very accurate. though the price is a little bit high, but you got what you pay for, worth to buy!

            Comments about Novoflex Adapter for Leica R Lens to Sony NEX Camera:

            I am using some legacy Leica R lenses on a Sony NEX-7 and a Sony A7r camera. The Novoflex, made in Germany, is a perfect compliment to the Leica lenses. I also have several Leica M lenses and both Novoflex and Metabones adapters. Both do the job, but the Novoflex is a bit nicer, like comparing a Leica lens to a non-Leica lens!

            I like having an adapter on each Lecia lens since I am using both M and R lenses.

                Comments about Novoflex Adapter for Leica R Lens to Sony NEX Camera:

                when you have pricey Leica R lenses I did not want to get a cheap adapter, as if it does not fit perfect, the connecting base on the lenses could be damaged. I performed many test shots and found the results to be almost as good as with my original Leica.

                The adapter is perfect and on the Nex 7 works very well. Focusing is easier than on my DSLR because the little red dots show up when the lens is in focus.

                Comments about Novoflex Adapter for Leica R Lens to Sony NEX Camera:

                Leica R lenses (in good condition) aren't cheap. So, for me, it makes sense to take care of them, and a well-built adapter like this helps to do that. This Novoflex connects with a solid click (both sides) and keeps the lens firmly in place. That's all it does, and that's all it has to do. I have a (much) cheaper adapter of Eastern origin, and it just doesn't do the job as well, though it's not terrible. Is this one worth the price? Who knows. I just feel better knowing my lenses aren't being potentially compromised by putting them into contact with less well machined surfaces.
