    This looks very good, but just how much of the A7r frame is covered by that lens ? I thought the Minilux were compact bodies with small sensors ?

    Cool! Looking forward to the details, Chad.

    I have one of these lenses that could use this conversion.

    No, the minilux were "full frame" 35mm film cameras. No issues with coverage.

    Hey Hey Vivek, welcome back!

    Yes, you will want to do it, especially if you already have a donor lens.

    I have a little Leica CM that I wondered if it ever craps out I could do something like this. Has Summarit 40 2:4

    I'm not sure if the kit supports the CM but you would think it would - same lens. Just depends on how it is mounted in the CM compared to the Minilux. I'll ask the developer.
