Leica 14642 overview

  • 1Description

The R-Adapter M from Leica enables Leica R lenses to be mounted on the Leica M series cameras. The R-Adapter M can attach R lenses to any M-series digital camera, such as the M-E or M Monochrom, however with the M Digital Rangefinder's Live View capability, use of the R lenses is optimized. There are no electronic or mechanical functions between camera and lens that are bridged by the adapter, however, when the adapter is attached to the M camera, a list of 20 dedicated R lens profiles is made available on the camera, including EXIF lens recognition and calibrated imaging workflows for each lens. While all R lenses can be mounted to the M camera with this adapter, only the last generation of R lenses can receive digital corrections, such as the reduction of corner vignetting, via the adapter.

This adapter opens up the creative doors for the Leica M by making available numerous R series lenses, including zoom lenses. Combine this adapter with an optional electronic viewfinder and you can shoot your M Digital rangefinder like a DSLR, including video capture.

    Leica 14642 reviews

    R-Adapter M is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from built like a tank R-Adapter M brings some of the best lenses ever produced (Leica R) to easy use on today's M. Other German adapters work well, but this Leica model offers the most precise fit and an integrated tripod bracket that properly balances camera weight. You can feel the advantage of the Leica factory machined lens flanges: after installation, neither the R lens on adaptor or adaptor on M body have rotational play that could disturb correct alignment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Choice For Leicaflex Owners This adapter enables the use of ALL Leicaflex lenses. These lenses work well in the manual mode with any M-series camera and any M-type Visoflex. Attached to the M Leica and the electronic reflex type viewer, it is a compact setup. The only caveat is when using the 800 mm Telyt-S Tele, there is a bit of vignetting because of the smaller diameter M mount and the big f:5.6 lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This adaptor is well machined and worked perfectly. I went with the Leica adaptor as I have had issues with aftermarket ones. Well worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. A little more expensive than other options but very well made, clever removable tripod mount, fits perfectly with zero play, and automatically records lens in use. Well worth the extra cost for the superb build and extra functionality

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Leica craftmanship The R adapter is just fantastic. The support bracket makes all the difference with heavy long R lenses. Worth every penny!
