Re: Adapter

Just wondering is there a L mount to M mount adapter ? Thanks.

No. The L mount uses a shorter register (mounting flange to sensor/film distance) so while it's easy to adapt M lenses to L mount cameras, adapting L lenses to M cameras would require an adapter with extra optics. Also most if not all autofocus L lenses use a fly-by-wire "manual" focusing setup, which depends on the camera and lens talking to each other. With such a lens mounted on an M camera you couldn't focus it.
