  1. Click here to read a fun article about what some of us have been talking about. Old manual-focus lenses are great!

    I love my Leica Sumilux-R 80mm f/1.4 on my Canons.

    Here's two of my newborn (a few weeks ago) with that lens on my 5D:

    And your new born already know how to pose in the 1st photo.
     
  7. Pretty easy, there are hundreds of adaptors out there.

    I really like adaptors from this company, but there are dozens of others, and they all have stores on eBay.

    Congrats!!!

    Which Leica-R lenses will work? I hear there are mirror clearance issues with several.
     
  9. Leica dB for Canon EOS

    Scroll down, then check the various pages till you get your lens in question.

    Only a few don't work - unfortunately the legendary Sumilux-R 35mm doesn't work.
