    Which adapter for lens Leica-M and MFT

    In the market I found a lot of adapters lenses Leica-M for the MFT.
    Which you use?
    There is the Voigtlander adapter that costs a lot and then there are other unbranded and cheaper.
    What are the differences in your opinion? it is better to buy the Voigtlander? (because I want to buy a lens-Voigtlander Nokton 40mm/1.4-Leica-M mount)
    Thanks in advance

    Re: Which adapter for lens Leica-M and MFT

    The best one (also the first commercial adapter) is from Japan and is made by RayQual.

    I was fortunate to get one when it became available through a kind contributor/member here and I have not seen a better quality adapter, yet.

    (not only it is better than my self made adapter, it cost me less as well)

    What do you think about this Voigtlander adapter mount Leica-M to MFT?

    It is an adapter just like the RJ adapter or the one from Novoflex, etc.

    RayQual is a cut above the rest.

    I have used Novoflex, Rayqual, Voigtlander, and some misc. unbranded ones from China. The Rayqual and Voigtlander are identical build quality (i.e., very high.)

    Novoflex a bit less in build quality. I've had two, the first one would not reach infinity focus. The no-name ones work but are built to the lowest quality standard so they can be sold very cheap.

    I have the Panasonic version, DMW-MA2M. It is very high quality and heavy! I don't have any other adapters to compare it to, but I figured if I'm adapting expensive Leica M bayonet lenses, I might as well get a decent quality adapter. It's also made in Japan.
