Product Description

Zykkor Leica R Lens to Canon EOS Body Mount Adapter allows you to attach Leica R Mount Lens to a Canon EOS Digital or Film Camera Body. This adapter gives you the advantage to still be able to share your lenses between cameras without having to spend more on a whole new lens. Certain lenses cannot be replaced and maybe you like the look of a certain lens but want to be able to use it on another type of camera body. Now You Can!Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. "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. This Adapter allows for infinity focusing.

Verified Purchase
I've been reading about Leica R lenses and decided to buy a couple used lenses on an auction site to use on both my NEX (using a different adapter) and Canon 5D Mark II (using this adapter). Not all R lenses will work on the 5D as some will hit the mirror but many do work. Of course you will have to focus and adjust the aperture manually. However, with magnified live view focusing isn't too bad as long as it's not something that's moving quickly.

This adapter mounts securely to the lens and adequately to my 5D. It's a hefty piece of metal. The product description claims it's brass, which seems to be right since it's heavier than it would be if it were made of aluminum and the metal itself isn't attracted to a magnet, though the screws holding the piece together are. I only purchased one so I can't write about their quality control but the one I received has no play between the adapter and lens. The connection to the camera has a very slight rotational movement when I adjust the aperture on the lens, but it's no more than what my Canon L lens move (I don't notice it on the Canon glass since the aperture control is electronic while the Leica R lenses have a manual aperture ring). The lens release mechanism is located so you shouldn't accidentally press it while the lens is mounted (but I haven't tested this 100%).

I haven't tried any other Leica R to Canon adapters so I can't say if this is better or worse than the other brands you can purchase from Amazon or an auction site. However, if you have a heavy lens or want 100% certainty that the lens won't fall off your adapter you'll need to invest in something like a semi-permanent mount from Leitax which screws onto the existing mount (though it's about 5x the price of this and you'll need one for each of your R len$e$).
