Leica R mount lenses

introduction

  • these are manual focus, bayonet mount lenses designed for the Leica R 35mm film SLR cameras and as such they tend to be quite large and heavy, although generally, of high optical quality, especially the apochromatic ones such as the 90mm f/2 AA, 100mm f/2.8 Macro, 180mm f/2, 180mm f/2.8, and 280mm f/4.
  • flange focal distance between mount and film is 47 mm
  • these can be used via adapters on most digital cameras with interchangeable lenses EXCEPT for Nikon (unless the camera has been modified)
  • although they can be used on Micro Four Thirds system, their size makes them more usable on a Canon EOS camera system however, there may be issues with the Canon full frame mirror and some of the wider angle lenses.
