I just bought a Leica M to NEX adapter to supplement my Voigtlander adapter. It was not a necessary purchase.

I bought it to allow the use of the Novoflex tripod mount collar. It is a superbly machined collar with both a tripod socket and an ara-swiss type quick release mount. It allows the lens adapter to carry the weight of the lens instead of the NEX body. (There have been multiple reports of the tripod socket of the NEX-7 coming loose. (my other adapters do not have a tripod socket).

I already had a Pentax DA to Nex adapter that I was using with a SMC M 200mm f4. It is very reassuring to have the NEX-6 secure on a tripod with the weight of the lens transmitted to the tripod collar via the adapter instead of the camera socket.

GXRuser, do you happen to have a link to this tripod mount collar ? I suppose many people here would be interested. Do you know is limitations in diameter (min/max) ?

I ordered one a few days ago. They are backordered for now in the US.
