Hawks HKSLM2SEMHV5 overview

  • 1Description

The Leica M Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Macro Helicoid Adapter V5 from Hawks adapts an M Mount lens to a Sony E-mount camera but goes a step further by utilizing a helicoid to enable a closer focus distance than the lens can otherwise provide. The movement of the helicoid pushes the lens away from the sensor and, like an extension tube, provides closer focusing capabilities. This Version 5 adapter features a large, button-style lens release tab for easily mounting and removing lenses from the adapter. Additionally, an integrated focusing tab aids in precise focusing control and the adapter is solidly built for smooth, well-damped lens movement.

Minimum Focus Distances for Select Lenses with Helicoid Extended
  • Summilux 35mm f/1.4: 11" / 28cm
  • Summilux 50mm f/1.4: 16.9" / 43cm
  • Noctilux 50mm f/0.95: 16.9" / 43cm
  • Summicron 50mm f/2: 15" / 38cm
  • Hektor 73mm f/1.9: 28.7" / 73cm (requires separately purchased M39 to Leica M adapter)
  • Summicron 90mm f/2.0: 28.7" / 73cm

    Hawks HKSLM2SEMHV5 reviews

    Leica M Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Macro Helicoid Adapter V5 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice - worth the money! I've been using a cheaper macro helicoid. It about 1/3 the price, but lacked the adjustable infinity lock (which is a great feature!). The cheap adapter also had issues with paint flaking off the sharp barrel surfaces. This paint could easily end up on the sensor! The Hawks seems much better made -- better machining and finishing. It's a little tight to turn, but that's fine. You won't confuse it with something Leica made, but it's a solid product. And the finish looks much better than the cheap helicoids and I suspect it will hold up much better. I usually use cheapo lens adapters but this is case where buying a better product makes sense.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Painful experience with Hawks service I bought this hawks Leica M Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Macro Helicoid Adapter V5 from BH in May and I found two issues with the adapter. 1) For the Leica 50mm Summilux 11 114, it can not lock into place 2) For all my other Leica M lenses, I can not remove lens from the adapter without taking the adapter off the camera first. I also owned an 2.5 version of Hawks' adapter which allows me to change lens without taking the adapter off the camera first. I do not know if this is a design issue or just this sample is defective. I contacted the distributor of Hawk's Factory at Hong Kong by email on July 6, 2015. They ignored me for 12 days until B&H stepped in and they send email asking what was wrong. I described the issues again hoping things would be sorted out soon. Unfortunately, now three weeks has passed and there is no further communication from them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathes new life into classic lenses This adapter breathes new life into M-mount rangefinder lenses. I've compared this to other Helicoid adapters and I definitely prefer this one. Previous Hawk adapters didn't lock, but this one has a clever automatic lock with a spring. This means that once you learn the feel of it, you don't have to take your eye away from the viewfinder to use it, and it snaps into place when you want your lens back at the proper mounting distance. The tension to focus just about perfect. It is fairly smooth to adjust while extending, and yet it doesn't creep between shots. I've used this with the Voigtlander 40mm f/1.4 Nokton, 15mm f/4.5 Heliar, 28mm f/2 Ultron, and the Leica 90mm f/2.8 Elmar fat. It's not quite macro, but it allows much closer focusing. Poor minimum focusing distance is a major limitation in many rangefinder lenses, and this helps to overcome that. It allows you to get 30-60% closer to your subject depending on the lens attached. The adapter is slightly shallow, so to get infinity you have to focus to the hard infinity stop on the lens and then ease back a little. I've never found an adapter Helicoid or otherwise that hit infinity exactly on the mark, so I can't really knock Hawk for that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best M to E adapter I have the same adapter for my Fuji X-E2 and works flawlessly as well. i originally purchased the Voigtlander VM-E but returned it because i did not think it worked that great. The helicoid was very tight and latch for the lens wasnt designed that well. I felt it was overpriced. Definitely get this adapter over the others. Also no issues focusing to infinity like some of the other adapters

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Marginal build quality and incompatible Build quality is marginal. There's quite a bit of play with the coupling - manageable with smaller lenses but heavier ones it wobbles quite a bit with minor focus adjustments. Additionally I just discovered that the Leica R-M adapter doesn't fit at all. The Hawks adapter has a raised lip that prevents the Leica adapter from attaching. I do love the Helicoid functionality that allows closer focusing on my Leica lenses; if only the build quality was up to snuff and the lip wasn't sticking up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from closer focus with used lenses and adjustable infinity stop in combination with Voigtlander Super Wide-Heliar 15mm F/4.5 Aspherical iii Lens (M-Mount) + close up focus to 30mm + adjustable infinity stop + good Quality
    Date published: 2016-05-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic adapter for using Leica M lenses on Sony E mount I bought this adapter to mount my Leica Lenses to my new Sony Alpha A7. Works great and the added feature of the helicoid extender allows closer focus with the Leica lenses. Well made and sturdy at a fair price.
    Date published: 2016-11-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as intended I bought this instead the much more expensive Voigtlander option and have been very pleased. Solid mount and close focus function works great. I also have the Leica M-Fuji X version of the same product, no complaints at all. Recommended.
