      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.

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

        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.

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

          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.
