Key Features
  • Adapts Leica M Lens to Sony NEX Camera
One of the most appealing aspects of small mirrorless cameras like the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 is the availability of a wide range of interchangeable lenses, including non-Sony lenses. This Novoflex Adapter for Leica M Lens to Sony NEX Camera makes it possible to mount a Leica M lens to your NEX-3 or NEX-5 camera with a precision mechanical adapter. Such an adapter does not transfer functions from the camera to the lens, such as auto focus, but automatic exposure metering (stop-down metering/aperture priority) is possible. The lens will focus to infinity using this adapter.

Novoflex NEX/LEM Reviews

Quality at a price

Camera side mount is smooth and fits precisely on my a7ii. The lens side is a perfect fit for my 2000s era Leica Summarit-M 35mm, and 1955 9cm Elmar. A 90s era 90mm Elmarit-M has a tiny amount of play. My 70s 50mm Summicron-M iv has a bit more play, which is annoying since it is my main lens. (All the above lenses fit my Leica M6TTL body perfectly.) I tried 2 other adapters before this: a $20 Fotodiox (all lenses were looser but worked) and a $77 Kipon, which was so tight I was afraid to damage the lenses and returned it. All of the adapters mount to the camera fine. So this is the best so far and feels the best made, but it is still disappointing to have any play at all in any lens that would work perfectly on a Leica body, especially when this costs 10x as much as the cheapest adapter.

Terrible.  Maybe I got the defective one?

Ive used lots of adapters on Micro 4/3 and Fuji, and my experience is that Novoflex is the (overpriced) best, but this one is a disaster. I mounted a Leica lens on the adapter. The lens felt too tight and didnt seem to click properly. (There should be almost no resistance until the lens hits the locking pin.)  Then tried to mount the adapter on my A7II.  I used more force than I was comfortable with and the adapter felt rough and would not click on the camera mount.  I fooled with it a little to make sure I hadnt done something wrong, then gave up. Took the lens/adapter off the camera and found that the lens was jammed on the adapter.  Had to wrap the adapter and lens with towels and twist with two hands while another person held down the release button. All I can think of is that this one somehow slipped through Novoflexs quality  control. Theres absolutely no reason for an item this expensive to work this poorly.  If you buy one of these, try it the first day, and if it doesnt work smoothly and effortlessly, return it.  Thats what Im doing.

It does the trick!!!

It does the trick. You can use your Leica lenses with a Sony. Not bad at all!! Only surpassed for the Techart autofocus adapter, in a different range of price, of course.

The lens fits well in the mount. My pictures are sharp on my Sony A7ii. My m-mount zeiss 35mm has some softness at the edges but I don't blame the adapter for that.

Absolutely first class product

Purchased for use with a Leica TriElmar 28-35-50 lens, a discontinued item going for around $4000 on the used market. Body was a Sony A7. Construction is first rate. All surfaces are clean and free of any machining indications. Black finish is smooth and consistent and a pleasing matt. Attachment to both the camera body and the Leica lens is very smooth and proper fitting. Not too tight or too lose. No play or wiggle when attached. Vignetting was very light. No color fringing noted at frame edges and the image remains sharp across the entire frame. I see no indication that the results come from a Sony instead of my Leica M240 M-P. Release button is smooth in operation and slightly recessed, so that the button head does not protrude beyond the adapter edges and interfere with the fingers on the right hand, as is the case with some other brand adapters.

Solid And Has A Good Feel

Leica lenses like quality adapters. The cheap Chinese just won't do. Worth the price of admission.

Better than Voigtlander Adapter

The built quality is excellent. There is not any light leak.

The Leica M mount is a different type of mount from the M42 screw-mount type. Below is a link to a recommended M42-Sony NEX adapter for you to regard on our website:http://bhpho.to/18iO6q6

question

Does this work with the Leica T2 adapter. Wanting to use the Sony A7Riii with Leica Televit 82?
Asked by: Liz
Specifically, this adaptor will not work. Although it's Sony E mount on the camera side, it is ONLY Leica M mount on the lens side. Although Im not familiar with digi-scoping setups, you could potentially combine a Sony Nex to Leica M adaptor (such as this one) with a Leica M to Leica T2 adaptor (for example: https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1084495-REG/leica_42334_digiscope_adapter_t2_for_m.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1084495-REG/leica_42334_digiscope_adapter_t2_for_m.html</a>)
