    Leica M/MFT question

    I have just bought a Voigtlander Leica M/MFT adapter and would like to try my WATE with it. However no Leica lenses are listed on the compatability list which came with the adapter and I am concerned it may get damaged if I try it

    Does anyone know whether it is safe to use with an MFT adapter?

    Thanks

    I believe the Wate is a screw mount. If it is you will need the 'Screw' mount adaptor. It is a $57.00 item that you can get from Camerquest or other Voigtlander supplier.

    Information can be found at: http://www.cameraquest.com/adaptltm.htm


    The metal ring fits into the M/MFT Voigtlander adaptor. The combination of the two allows you to use 'M' mounts and 'Screw' mounts with the micro 4/3 camera.

    You can also get a direct Screw Mount adaptor to Micro four thirds. I believe Novaflex sells one.

    If it is a M mount then the M/MFT Voigtlander adaptor should work.



    The above adaptor is what I use for my Voigtlander/Leica"M" lens to my GF1.

    Thanks guys - looks like is safe to try.

    I was concerned that some lenses extend too far back and there is a potential problem due to this where the lens could be damaged
