    Question G1+MFT/LEM+LEM/LER+AMER = ?

    Now that I picked-up my novoflex mft/lem adapter today, it was time to get it attached to the G1 with the novoflex lem/ler adapter and my (only) R-lens. Did anyone tried this yet ?

    | m8 | summilux-m 1:1.4/50mm asph |


    | g1 | apo-macro-elmarit-r 1:2.8/100mm |


    It seems to work allright, although infinity just overshoots, but due to dusk falling in I can't be too sure for now.

    Kind regards.

    Nice pairing of Novoflex adapters.

    I have used a Summicron-R 50/2, in my case it was a three step adaption:

    (a) modify the lens to Nikon F mount (leitax.com)
    (b) use Nikon to 4/3 adapter (Fotodiox)
    (c) 4/3 to 4/3 (Pana DMW-MA1)

    Sigh.... I owned one of these beauties, complete with the matching Elpro for 1:1, and sold it a few years ago....

    About the infinity overshoot, Ive noticed that the Novoflex adapter gives that effect with all my M lenses; I suspect that they make them slightly short in order to make sure all lenses will indeed focus to infinity (cheaper than machining to tight tolerances...). Also, I seem to remember the ApoMacro Elmarit itself had a slight overshoot like many longer lenses have, but Im not altogether certain.

    Starting to get lost on ALL these adapters around. Where the hell was that Leica to Nikon adapter when I needed it. That one is really compelling

    Guy, the Leitax product for Nikon began shipping last month. It's not an adapter however, it's a replacement bayonet. The lenses can be converted back to Leica R, so it is not permanent.

    Summicron-R 50/2

    Pros: Focuses closer than Summicron-M; works on my Nikons, too; cheap
    Cons: Bigger than Summicron-M

    Hi all,

    yesterday evening I talked to Mr. Hiesinger, CEO of Novoflex in Germany.

    They showed the MFT/Leica M Adapter in Solms on the "Leica Erlebnistag", but now they announced some more adapters:

    In March
    • MFT/CAN (Canon FD)
    • MFT/CO (M 42)
    • MFT/CONT (Contax/Yashica)
    • MFT/LER (Leica R)
    • MFT/MIN (Minolta MD)

    European price is 119 Euro

    In May some more adapters which can stop down (right words?), prices aren't fixed until now:
    • MFT/MIN-AF (Minolta AF / Sony)
    • MFT/NIK (Nikon)
    • MFT/PENT (Pentax)


    My original posting in the new German Forum Fourthirds:

    Best regards from Bonn

    Thanks Andreas, I have updated the G1 Adapter List (http://doiop.com/g1adapters.) Previously they had announced an Olympus OM adapter, also.

    ...another source, if it is interesting for you:

    www.nikon-discount.com (eBay)
    www.nikon-discount.com

    Leica M39 -> G1 = 70 (90 $)
    Leica M -> G1 = 90 (116 $ - I have ordered)
