View Full Version : Canon EF lens & Leica CL body
I am sure someone already asked this but I can not find any info.
I have Canon 5d and some nice EF lens (and Leica CL with nice lens as well).
Is there a way (adapter exists?) to use Canon EF lens on M mount body like Leica CL?
I seem to remember a magazine article (...back in the day...) by Bill Pierce about adapting lenses to a CL. Bill?
Well I guess it is way too complicated and not practical. Since EF lens have only focusing ring, it wouldn't be very useful even if you could mount the lens.
You would have to shoot at the max aperture of the lens - no aperture ring, electronically controlled - and guess the distance focus.
Canon's consumer-level lenses aren't known for being the sharpest tools in the camera bag.
This is in addition to the technical issues that already have been mentioned: No ability to control the aperture manually, being the primary one.
