Vello LA-NEX-LM Overview

Make the most of your existing collection of Leica M-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter that will allow you to mount these lenses to a Sony E-mount camera. Precise construction makes it easy to attach these adapted lenses to your camera and keeps it secure during use. Infinity focus is guaranteed, ensuring that you get proper functionality our of all your optics. Additionally, the adapter is made from a durable zinc alloy and features a matte black finish on the inside to reduce the potential for glare and reflections that can negatively impact image quality.

Although the lens will fit physically, autofocus, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), and other functions dependent on communication between camera body and lens will be disrupted by the lens adapter. You will need to focus manually, and to set exposures manually or meter in aperture priority (stop-down) mode. Focusing to infinity is retained.

This adapter enables the use of Leica M lenses on Sony E-mount cameras, meaning you can now use your existing stable of lenses on your current camera. It is also very secure, holding the lens in place without any wobble sometimes associated with the adapting process.
Thanks to precise manufacturing, this adapter is guaranteed to provide infinity focus by placing the lens at the correct distance from the sensor. This allows you to make the most of your lenses and doesn't limit you from shooting distant subjects.
Made from a durable zinc alloy, this adapter will withstand many uses and won't wear or break in the way soft brass or cheap plastic would. Also, an internal matte black finish reduces reflections and glare, ensuring your images look sharp and contrasty.

Vello Adapter: Perfect Tool

By Bob

I ordered the Vello Leitz to Sony E so I could use M lenses on a Sony A7R4. The package arrived quite quickly, as B&H promised. The unit is well made; there is no looseness in the lens or body side. The lens couples into the adaptor and the adaptor into the camera. Results are quite nice. Color is fine and sharpness excellent. Shooting with manual focus with great lenses makes working with this setup fine. Adaptor is all Zi wished for

Leica M lens to Sony a7R3 �body.

Leica Summicron-M 50mm F2 lens (c.1982) to a new Sony a7R3 �body is a good combo for me. Sony body �set to "Auto" and up and going right out of the box. An old Kodak +3 close-up (supplementary) lens is a cheap way to get higher magnification with the Summicron.

I would buy it again

Works great and now I can use my Leica glass on my a6000.

Functions properly with a cosmetic failing

By James

This adapter functions properly, but the machining makes the fir very tight on the M side and the E side. Also, when properly installed the lens does not line up at the 12:00 position relative to the camera body. The effect of this is that the lens markings are shifted by about 5-8 degrees to the left of where they should be. Not a huge deal, but this detracts from full enjoyment of the adapter.

I would buy this product again.

Works perfectly! Now I can use my 1950's Leitz lenses on my Sony digital camera!

Works great on Sony a7lll. Especially since camera has enlarged zoom functionality

Another great adapter

This adapter fit snugly onto my Sony A7II with no play. The m mount non 6 bit lenses were reassuringly tight. The Leica M 90mm fit perfectly. The 35mm ZM lens required an extra push to get it fully mounted (but felt good and secure once on). The 6 bit coded lenses just couldn't mount on mine. If you are using any M mount prior to 6 bit I highly recommend this one. If all 6 bit, get the German one.

And would it work on the new A7R camera, or is it dedicated for APSC sensors of the NEX series? If not, is there an M to E mount adapter you can recommend for full frame E-mount cams?
