Beauty becomes the beast!
Leica M camera with 70-180mm Elmarit-R lens.
A Leica M (especially the venerable M3) is a thing of beauty… whereas this set-up has turned the latest rendering of that camera into a beast, judging by the look of it. No doubt it will satisfy some (a very few?) photographers’ needs to connect their R-type lenses to their M-type body. However, the two were never meant to be mixed and the attempt to do so must surely be a compromise.
