One of the most appealing aspects of small mirrorless cameras like the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 is the availability of a wide range of interchangeable lenses, including non-Sony lenses. This Novoflex Adapter for Leica M Lens to Sony NEX Camera makes it possible to mount a Leica M lens to your NEX-3 or NEX-5 camera with a precision mechanical adapter. Such an adapter does not transfer functions from the camera to the lens, such as auto focus, but automatic exposure metering (stop-down metering/aperture priority) is possible. The lens will focus to infinity using this adapter.

Dismounting is just as simple...you press the little chrome button on the adapter and turn the lens the opposite direction as you would when you mount it. The Leica lenses I have used with the adapter on the Sony A7s and A7ii have easily mounted and dismounted without any issues. The lenses have not gotten stuck, nor has it required any more than normal effort to turn and mount/dismount them.
The adapter comes in a translucent plastic case, and a front-end cap to help protect the contact points.
I have no complaints with this adapter whatsoever. I'd be very comfortable recommending it to anyone wishing to use their Leica lenses with the Sony cameras this adapter fits.
I have another adapter (chrome finish) from Voigtlander dealer which is also very good, and a little less expensive.

Currently I own three E mount to M adapters for my a7r: A Fotodiox, a Voigtlander close focus adapter and the Novoflex. Here's their characterisitcs:
Voigtlander: slight play between focus ring and mount, and slight play between mount and camera. The lens can be slightly wobbled around when mounted. Like all adapters, the voigtlander overshoots infinity by quite a margin, making it easy to lose a landscape shot unless care is taken. It's a heavy, very expensive item and not especially well made.
Fotodiox: This is a light, well made and well engineered item. It looks great on the camera and has very little play between lens and mount. Like the Voigtlander, it overshoots infinity, but by a smaller margin than the Voigtlander.
Novoflex: this is a very plain, light mount. It nails infinity almost perfectly too. The crucial point is that it has no play between mount and camera and mount and lens. Of the three, it's obviously the most precisely engineered.
So, massively expensive then, but given the quality of glass the Novoflex is designed to mount, it makes complete sense to use this instead of other, less precise options. After all, a lens that moves in its mount when you focus is never a good thing!
I thought it was expensive but I myself thought it was better to pay more for a quality product made in Germany like Leica than a cheaper product I would not be happy with.
