Now I can use my M lenses

Took a chance on this adapter with a Sony A6400. I really like the versatility this brings to the camera... always found the Sony images to be a little clinical, but now that I can use my Voightander and Leica M lenses, this brings a bit more character. Though manual focus can sometimes be tricky.

Excellent adapter. Use it to mount Voigtlander 75mm ffor. M mount to Sony E mount on my a1. Percent fit feels like a native lens when used.

Decent for the price

This adapter is a tight fit, which is great. Rather have it be tight and strong than loose. It also has some nice heft to it and feels secure. Only issue with the adapter as I have had with other m-mount adapters is there seems to be serious light leak from where the lens mounts onto the adapter. Seems to be an issue across the board with all m mount adapters to emount This is only serious if you have a light directly hitting the adapter. I first noticed it with the sun when I had the camera outside during afternoon top sun hours. I tested it with other m mount lenses, and same issue occurred. I even had the adapter replaced, and the issue was still there. You can test it with a flash light hitting the adapter and back of the lens mounted, there's a certain angle where you see internal flaring from the adapter. Since there really is no escaping the issue with other adapters, I would say this is probably the best option right now.

the Metabones adapter works perfectly on my 28, 50, 90 and 135 Leica lenses. Just manual focus - I often open to max aperture to focus then shut down for the photo.

A well made adapter

A very tight fit on my Sony A7riv. I have another adapter for Nikon to Leica mount and it is a little loose. Tight seems like a better option to keep percice focus across the plane.

Does it shortens the Minimum Focus Distance of lens?
Asked by: Muiz
No, the minimum focus distance will remain the same. The adapter provides the same flange distance between Leica M lenses to the sensor on Leica Rangefinder cameras when you mount the lens on a Sony Mirrorless camera.

question

Does anyone know if this fits the Voightlander 25mm F/0.95 MFT (Micro Four Thirds). I recently purchased an adapter through Voightlander to connect with Sony A7sii, and though the adapter fits the camera, the lens does fit into it?
Asked by: Zachary
The Metabones Leica M Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera T Adapter will not be compatible with the Voightlander 25mm F/0.95 MFT (Micro Four Thirds). Your lens has a micro four thirds mount while this adapter is for the M-mount. These are two completely different mounts.

Does this item come with caps? I'd like this to live on my A7s, and be able to cap it so the sensor isn't in danger.
Asked by: Jared
This adapter doesn't come with caps, if you have a body cap for your Leica camera, that should work.

question

I bought this adapter and it seems very tight both on the camera side and the Leica lens side to the point of being afraid of breaking something when putting on or off. Did I happen to get a bad copy or are they all like that?
Asked by: Mory
Mine was the exact same. The more I used it, the better and easier it got.
