Leica R lenses via R to M adapter and A12 M-mount ?
Dec 6, 2011

I'm new to this forum and considering buying a GXR. I have three R-mount lenses from the 80ies:

  • 24mm f/2.8 Elmarit R

  • 75-200mm f/4.5 Vario-Elmar R

  • 60mm f/2.8 Macro-Elmarit R

Is it possible (does it make sense) to use these lenses with the A 12 M-mount ? Any experience with these lenses on the GXR ?

I understand that I would need a R to M mount adapter (Novoflex ?) and that the 75-200mm zoom might be too heavy to put the GXR on a tripod.

Thanks, nicola
