    I bought this to use a bunch of my M-mount lenses on my Sony A7. This is neither costly as some other brands nor cheaper than many other on the market. But it scones from a respectable maker and I assumed that would translate to a high precision tool so I do not damage my camera mount or the lens mount. I was not disappointed but a bit surprised when the 90mm Summarit did not pop in smoothly. But that was the case with the Voigtlanders (21, 35, and 40mm)as well. However, the adapter was buttery smooth on the camera that has already seen prime lenses and OM and F mount adapters. But in the end all is well although lenses fall into the adapter with a bit of resistance and I do not see no metal fillings or chips or deep scratches. PS: I hate fedex smart post... just wanted to put it out there as I waited 12 days to get my adapter.

    Can't focus to infinity wide open

    Using it on a Sony A7R. Useless, at least for me. Use Novoflex or Voigtländer instead

      Comments about Leica M Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Red):

      Now nearly every premium dream lens (with manual focus and aperture) is available for your use on a mirrorless digital camera with adapters like these. This adapter is rugged, and fits any M-mount lens to a Sony mirrorless camera perfectly, with no wobble. Use the colors (red or black) to match your camera finish or to keep track of different lens types.

        Comments about Leica M Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Black):

        The adapter is well built and so far works flawlessly with my Leica and Voightlander glass on the Sony a7S. My only complaint, mentioned by several others, is that the fit is almost too tight making switching lenses a bit of a chore. However too tight is far better than slightly loose and once the lens is on it is rock solid.

                The lens to adapter fit is very poor, engaging after 1/2 the distance to lock. Metabones customer service told me I could ship it back to Hong Kong for repair. I am awaiting B&H to resolve this issue.

                        The mount is very tight, too tight in fact. I have to use quite some strength to make the lens click. Mine focus a little past infinity

                              Instructions say that this is supposed to be a tight fit to stabilize leica mount lenses to the camera for video use. All I know is that I popped the red pip off my 50mm Summicron when I forcefully mounted the lens to this adapter... There has been a bit of improvement over this first week, but I think I will leave it on a lens and wait for the Novoflex to come in. Photographs with this adapter and my new Sony A7 have been wonderful, however, with no shading from the adapter on this full frame sensor.

                                I use this adapter with a Sony A7r and a Leica Summicron 50mm. The adapter works just fine but the fit with the lens is too tight. A lot of effort is required to remove the lens. I tried it with two Leica lenses and the effort required is the same. Focuses to infinity at all apertures without any problems.

                                    Very well made. A little tight, but locked onto lens and body securely. I am sure it will loosen up a bit with use. Very nice adapter.

                                      I bought this adapter for mounting my Leica M lenses onto A7R. It is made in high precision and does what it should be. The reason to deduct one star is - the plating surface has minor defect onto it, even though this does not impact function.

                                          Using it on a Sony A7R. Useless, at least for me. Use Novoflex or Voigtländer instead

                                              This Metabones adapter makes a good, solid connection between my Leica, Zeiss and Voigtlander M-mount lenses and my Sony a7. It does allow proper focus to infinity as described.

                                                Not super tight, maybe more like snug in a good way

                                                Perfect, no issues at all

                                                Price is reasonable and def. worth it, unlike those others that charge 3 times as much

                                                    Excellent construction and good fit on my NEX6. Should be a perfect match for the new Sony A7/7R cameras.

                                                        Well machined, doesn't jiggle, allows focus to infinity. All you could ask for in an adapter without the premium price tag
