LEICA R-ADAPTER M
The Leica M was developed for customers who want to put their excellent Leica R lenses to digital use. The new LEICA R Adapter for the first time gives users the option of deploying almost any Leica R lens ever built with their Leica M. The camera menu lists more than 20 different R lenses from wide-angle, telephoto and zoom through to macro lenses, including calibrated imaging workflow and EXIF lens detection. The wide selection of lenses opens up new application options to Leica M photographers, HD video recording in conjunction with the Leica R Vario lenses and using lenses with focal lengths longer than 135mm.

I inherited two Leica R SLR lenses - an f2.0 50mm Summicron lens and a 90mm f2.8 Elmarit lens. Both of these film lenses can be now used in the digital world on my Leica M camera. With the adapter, I can select the appropriate lens from the camera menu system. With an electronic viewfinder from Olympus, I use both lenses as if I were using a SLR camera.
I'm amateur photographer (www.icsphoto.us), I used Leica R Adapter M with Leica lens 80-200 f4 . I shoot this orchid picture under the ametriopia lights source from orchid exhibition hall in Orchid festival in Santa Barbara California. It is very difficult to take picture. But I feel good when I used Leica R adapter M with 80 200 f4 . Here is a orchid picture I shoot under very bright/strong various lights in exhibition hall.
