Novoflex LEM/LER Overview

The Novoflex Lens Mount Adapter allows a Leica R type lens to be mounted onto a Leica M type camera.

Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm (AE metering) or any other functions are not retained using this adapter. In this case you will have to meter in "stop-down mode", since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body.

The current version of this adapter comes with a special 6-bit marking on the camera side to bring up the Leica R-lenses menu in your Leica M 240 digital camera.

Does Novoflex offer a tripod lens support for this adapter? Is there something similar to the Novoflex ASTAT-NEX for this adapter?
Asked by: Anonymous
Tripod collars are lens model specific so your best to check to see if your R lenses have one available. Unfortunately, Novoflex only produces ASTAT lens collars for the NEX and Micro 4/3 adapters. The only option we have is the Manfrotto 293 Telephoto Lens Support. The length of the bracket is adjustable to take different length lenses.
