Technical Details


Product Description

If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save the cost of purchase on new lenses. Fotodiox offers a range of adapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters.

This Fotodiox lens mount adapter is made with high standard precision. The adapter's all metal design and polished surface is designed to guarantee a smooth mounting and long lasting experience. The adapter allows all Leica R (LR) Lenses to fit on Canon EOS (EF, EF-S) camera bodies.

Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode. Infinity focusing is guaranteed.

Compatible Cameras (including, but not limited to): 1d/1ds, Mark II, III, IV, X, C, 5D, 5D Mark II/III 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 60Da, Rebel xt, xti, xs, xsi, t1i, T2i, T3, T3i, T4, 300D, 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 1000D

This is an awesome way to use top quality Leica glass on your Canon EOS body. I have it on the EOS 5D Mark II. Very easy to use, works great, lenses are very secure. Also a great way to do video on the MK II because now you can control the aperture! Awesome product! Just ordered the Nikon F to EOS adapter as well.

As a photographer for some 50 years I bought the fotodiox Leica R to EOS lens mount which seemed secure with the first lens and then tried a second Leica R lens. As I was attaching the body lens combination to the tripod the lens spun around and detached from the fotodiox adapter - somehow I was able to catch the lens before it hit the concrete. After examining the adapter with a high power loop I found the problem - the spring loaded catch on the adapter was made too short and also the end that mates up with the lens was tapered slightly. The lens was never secure on the adapter. Beware of this and remember you get what you pay for!

This one works fine - mounts on my Leica R lenses without a problem. Focus thus far appears fine. I also bought the Pro version for $69.00 or something which DID NOT mount on the lenses, either to tight or the grooves were not properly aligned. The pro version is not near the quality of this one for $40.00 less.

I used it to mount a 50mm Leica Summicron-R lens (manual) onto a T2i and it fits perfectly on both the lens and the body sides. Just an excellent fit. Don't see any point in getting a "professional" variety that they also sell.

This is a well-made basic adapter that goes on effortlessly and works well. If you don't mind losing all automation, it's fine.

I have a Canon EOS 60D and a bunch of Leica R lenses. This adapter works fine with all of the Leica lenses. The mounting is stable and secure, even with the heavier lenses. What I cannot believe is that other companies charge so much for such a simple device. This adapter is less than a tenth of the price that is charged for the Novoflex adapter, and about five times less than the Bower adapter. Hard to believe that these other adapters are that much better.

True, there is no autofocus (unlike some adapters) but with adapted lenses, one has to expect manual control of certain things (such as aperture) anyway.

Bottom line: If you want to adapt your old Leica R lenses to Canon EOS, this adapter does the job for a very reasonable price.

i'm using this only with a 50 summilux-R -- good machining, nice fit and very easy. don't need a confirmation chip, focusing through the viewfinder is fine. i'm very pleased, and pleased i didn't have to get one of those 200$ novalox hyper-spesh adapter.

fotodiox also makes a hasselblad V lens adaptor to eos, and there's two models of that, and probably i'll get the more expensive one for those heavier lenses.

the depth of field and leica color work really well with my 1ds mark iii.
