[LRFlex] Re: The LeiNikon Option???

David,

I tried a Leica --> Canon D20 adaptor, but it would not accept a lens with a 
protruding rear end, such as the Vario 15-35mm zoom. What is your experience 
with this? Are you able to mount all current generation Leica lenses?

Regards,
Tim

Hi Tamislav!

As I understand the problem, the Nikon lens mount is less than 1mm closer to 
the film/sensor plane than the Leica-R mount. This does not leave enough space 
to make an adapter that will focus to infinity with -R mount lenses.  You can, 
with a series of adapters, mount older Visoflex (short mouont) glass that will 
focus to infinity, and you can mount R lenses if you wish close focus only.

To my knowledge the Canon EOS line is the only SLR that has a wide enough lens 
mount, and a registration (lens flange to film/sensor plane) distance short 
enough to enable successful adaptation with Leica-R lenses while maintaining 
infinity focus. I understand that this may also be possible with the Olympus 
E-1 system, as well.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

David.
