      This is my second Metabones adapter for my Nex 7 camera, I also have the Metabones Canon adapter. When I decided to add a Leica lens to my Nex kit Metabones was the logical choice.
      Since the 60mm Leica R lens I purchased is an older model and has no automated features I set the camera on manual and go old school with focus and exposure. Works great.
      Since the lens does not have an electronic connection to the camera you have to go into "camera setting" and enable "shoot without lens" in order for the camera to work with the adapter. BTW - you need to do this for Lens Baby as well.

      Terrible fit on 4 different lenses

      I tried this on 4 different Leica R lenses and it didn't fit right on any of them. It doesn't click into place and needs a ton of force to get the lens off....Read complete review

      I tried this on 4 different Leica R lenses and it didn't fit right on any of them. It doesn't click into place and needs a ton of force to get the lens off. 2 of the lenses it took about 5 minutes to get the lens off. Really disappointed and I am never buying Metabones again. The Novoflex adapters are way better built. I have zero confidence in this adapter with expensive lenses attached to it. It's already scratched my lenses at the mount. I'm really disappointed.

        Comments about Metabones Leica R Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter II (Black):

        The Metabones Leica-R to NEX adapter that I received was built like a tank & I was very happy. Then I tried to remove the lens!! I felt as though I was going to break the lens (specially the Summicron 50/2) as I had to wrench the lens back and forth until it released. This was my only adapter so now I can't use my two, new lenses until this all gets sorted out.

          The adapter was back ordered.I purchased a $ version. The lens rotated much more easily. Both lock precisely. Both take finesse to depress the release lock.The Tripod mount is very nice for longer lenses.

                  Comments about Metabones Leica R Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter II (Black):

                  Sure cheaper adapters exist all over the place and I have used almost all of them across a wide range of lens and manufacturers. Honestly, the cheaper adapters always suited me fine, with "cheaper" lenses.When I first tried to adapt the Leica R lenses I had to my Sony A7- The $25 adapter was not sufficient. It has significant side to side play and the lens never felt secure.I returned multiple of the same product and found it to be the case with them all. The Metabones Adapter solved that instantly and feels and looks much better!It matches the diameter of the Leica lens and makes the whole package look more nature. It's just much better made over those $25 options. You can tell right away, from it's weight and how the lens snap together nice and tight. NO PLAY!But! Do not let "the weight" push you away, it isn't noticeable... since most Leica R lenses are heavy beast themselves.I wouldn't waste my time with cheap alternatives any more, save up and buy the Metabones.

                  Comments about Metabones Leica R Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter II (Black):

                  First, the negative.The lens mount is almost too tight on some lenses (apparently this is done deliberately and can be "loosened" by disassembling and bending the leaf springs).Mounting and releasing the lenses can be awkward - it seems like certain stops are missing so the lens can rotate past the lock and release points if you're not paying attention. I did eventually get used to this but I suspect this is nowhere near as elegant as lens changing would be on a genuine Leica body.Worse, the release lever feels a bit floppy and it leaks light! This would only cause real problems under some very specific circumstances - I have to admit, I've never seen any evidence of light contamination with my usage. (If you do long exposures in daylight, you may wish to take precautions. It should be noted that many cameras' mounts can leak as well.)Quibbles aside, I have been pretty pleased with this unit over 18 months of use.One tremendous asset of these Metabones adapters is the rock solid (yet removable) tripod foot. This has proven absolutely invaluable for proper balance and avoiding structural strain, using the heavy Leica-R lenses on the tiny Sony E-mount bodies.Having a mounting foot this sturdy has become a very big deal for me. As I contemplate switching to a different system of legacy lenses, I will get another Metabones adapter, just to keep having this tripod mount. (The screw-in type on some cheaper adapters is not acceptable to me.)The foot also functions as an Arca-Swiss "plate" and works very smoothly with my Sunwayfoto swiveling clamp. That actually comes in very handy out in the field.I have been tempted to try the Novoflex adapter - it would probably do more justice to the exquisite crafting of the Leica lenses. It's hard for me to justify the additional cost, though - especially if you factor in the expensive accessory needed for tripod mounting.For the time being, for me, the $ Metabones adapters seem like the best way to go for my most often-used legacy mounts.

                    I started using inexpensive adapters for my R mount lenses. And they seem to work fine on my NEX7. On my A7, however, the adapters don't fit snugly and there's a slight wobble when focusing or adjusting the aperture. The metabones doesn't have this problem and fits tightly to my A7.
