Re: Factory M240 R to M adaptor released

I have the adapter since a few month, and I have a nice collection of R lenses from my R 6 days. The nice thing is that the adaptor has a 6 bit coding it allows you to identify in the 2002 firmware manually which R lenses you are using. However despite having the M 240 told which R lens you use, and the firmware corrects the lens deficiencies, the XIF data does not get the info. So later you can not determine which lens was used. Kind of a silly thing but probably easy to correct. Some user say the R lenses are "flat" on contrast, but I can not confirm this. If at all, the R lenses have a light yellow color, which is not as cold as some of the Canon colors. My favorite R lens is the Vario 28 to 90 mm, perfectly compensated and as an M lens would be my dream lens. The TriElmar 28-35-50 is a powerful second. The X Vario camera has a good zoom lens, if designed for the M would be spectacular. Anyone from Leica listening ????
