Leica R lenses on a Sony A7 – another fantastic combination

Last week I wrote about Leica M lenses on a Sony A7.

Today it is about Leica R lenses on a Sony A7.

I have to say this is another fantastic combination.

With one great benefit. Leica R lenses are cheap on Ebay these days.

The Leica R Series was discontinued several year ago.

So there is no more system for these lenses.You can get a 50mm R lens quiet cheap on Ebay these days.

And the R lenses are Leica lenses.

Same quality than the M lenses.

They work perfectly in combination with the Sony A7. Get a Novoflex adapter and you are ready to go.

The Sony focuspeaking works fantastic with the R lenses

.I have to say it again the focus peaking system of the Sony A7 is the best on the market today. No doubt about this.

The pictures are taken with these lenses:

Summicron-R 1.2/90Macro-Elmrit-R 1:2.8/60

Vario-Elmar-R 1:4/80-200

Macro-Elmarit-R 1:2.8/60

Now I let the pictures do the talking.
