  • It would be helpful to know your budget and to know what kinds of photography you enjoy. If you keep all the lenses, the most versatile all-around solution is going to be an SL body.   But that's a ...
  • Thank you, Frank.  With a limited budget, I'm searching for an affordable FF solution to enjoy the R lenses as I did when they were on an R8.
  • Ouch!  I'll probably use the Fotodiox with my rental test Canon RF, and if I decide to buy it, then I'll invest in the Novoflex.  Everyone says they're noticeably better built, but wow they cost a ...
  • Yikes!  Thank you for the heads-up.  I've used one with four different R lenses on a Canon 60D body without trouble.  I just ordered one from Fotodiox prior to doing a test run with a rental R -- ...
  • Just to be clear, are you saying that the only difference between the manual focus PROCESS for non-electronic lenses on the R and the RP is that on the R  you need to turn off the Focus Guide feature?
  • Created discussion thread Focusing old manual lenses on R and RP
    I own some nice old ('80s) Leica R lenses that I'd like to use with a full-frame sensor. They are strictly manual, no electronics at all. I know I'll need an adapter. Questions: 1) Will there be ...
  • Thank you, RLN, but all of my lenses were made before ROM was even an option.  I'm not going to be investing in any new glass;  given my finances, I'm simply trying to determine which full-frame ...
  • Thank you for the detailed reply, RLN.  In fact, for about 25 years I've owned four R lenses, all 3-cam but not ROM.  I'll be curious see how much vignetting there is.
  • Well, folks, I took matters into my own hands, and ordered a Fotodiox adapter -- $48 after a 20% discount last weekend.  My plan is to rent an RP for a week for $75  to see if the lenses (35, 50, ...
  • The A7r has been popular for this.  I've not invested because of the price and because of my familiarity with the Canon DSLR set-up and menus. What version of the A7r are you using?
  • Created discussion thread Leica R lenses on Canon R or RP?
    I'm curious whether anyone here has used Leica R lenses on a Canon R or RP?  If so, which company's adapter (Novoflex, Fotodiox, Metabones...) did you use?   How were the results?  Any advice? I've ...
  • I've used Fotodiox in the past, so I'm familiar with the lack of auto-exposure.  I'm just not sure if it's worth paying 3x the cost of Fotodiox to step up to the Novoflex.   I'm tempted, though, ...
  • That would be nice, if it weren't twice as expensive ($2k vs. $1k) as the Canon RP.  Heck, the SL would be  even nicer, but I'm a retired teacher with a daughter just starting college...
  • Thank you, but I don't own the Canon.  I was wondering if anyone had tried the combination, as I'd like to buy a full-frame body in order to use my lenses as designed.
  • Created discussion thread Leica R on Canon R or RP
    I'd love to hear from anyone who's used Leica R lenses on a Canon R or RP. What adapters did you use? Did the results do justice to the R lenses? I've got four R lenses that I still haven't used on ...
  • Given your interests (building/city/landscape/cats; supplementing the Canon), the Q2 seems ideal to me.   The only category for which it might not be ideal is the cats, and yet...  it's excellent ...
  • I have been waiting for nearly 10 years for a small "point-and-shoot" of high enough quality to take the plunge.  Once, before I owned an iPhone, I rented a Leica C for a bucket-list vacation, but ...
  • Replied in Pandemic Guard
    This superb image deserves wide distribution.  Your unconventional framing reinforces the surreal nature of these times.  Thank you for sharing it.
  • With a little too much coronatime on my hands... #1  Lovely exposure -- not easy to do.   The weight of the block on the left seems heavy.  Perhaps cropping would help, especially because the most ...
  • Ahhh, thank you.  That area had occurred to me because I've been through the area, but I thought it would be a little greener by now.  Thank you - that was fun.
