Leica R Lenses on Leica M Typ 240 Using R-Adapter M

See previous discussion of the Leica R to Leica M lens adapter.

Today I shot the Leica 90mm f/2 APO-Summicron-R ASPH and 100mm f/2.8 APO-Macro-Elmarit-R on the Leica M Typ 240 using the Leica R-adapter M (see details).

Initial results show that these two Leica APO lenses work exceedingly well on the M240, including ease of focus and sharpness. Results are stunningly sharp. I’ll be posting many Ultra-HD examples when I return, my goal on this trip being to explore the performance bounds on the M240, as well as bokeh and overall behavior.

One also wonders whether a suitable lens adapter (with necessary tripod mount) will be forthcoming for Leica R lenses on the Sony A7R. Now that could get interesting: a Sony A7R with these Leica APO lenses (36MP) versus the Leica M Typ 240 (24MP). But that Leica R-adapter M is a superbly built item whereas 3rd party lens adapters range in quality from marginal to adequate.

The worst problem: forgetting to change the lens profile when changing lenses.

It’s cold at 13,000' elevation. Colder than usual for mid October. My practical usage complaint about the Leica M Typ 240 is that its controls are badly designed for use in cold weather (gloves), really inferior to a Nikon or Canon DSLR which I can operate with even fairly thick gloves.

These images look terrific in Retina resolution on a retina display.
