Extended compatibility through adapters
Adapters allow the use of different lenses on different cameras, even if they are not designed for each other and feature various connectors. In most cases, an adapter does not change the imaging behavior of the lens, since meticulous attention is paid to this in the design of the adapter. In most cases, it is also possible to focus to infinity, which is no longer possible with some combinations because the lens distance from the sensor is too great.
Kipon L/M-EOS R: Leica M Lenses on cameras with Canon RF Mount
This adapter allows the use of almost all Leica M lenses on cameras with Canon RF mount. The lens can only be used in manual mode. Focusing to infinity is available. Special caution is required when attaching wide-angle and fisheye lenses to the adapter.
Some adapters transmit the electrical signals between the camera and the lens so that, for example, fully automatic exposure programs and automatic focusing remain possible. Others do not, so that the photographer has to operate the lens manually - but even for beginners in photography this is not a real obstacle. With this adapter, only manual operation with the Leica M lenses is possible.
