    Bought the LEICAN adapter so I could use Canon FD glass on my Leica's. Well I stuck it on, hung a 15mm FD lens on it and all the photos were out of focus. Not even close!

    Put a 50mm 1.4 lens on it, opened the shutter at B and then put some wax paper where the film goes (using as ground glass). Well it will only focus at about 18 inches.

    So does any know of an adapter that actually works??

    Combine a Canon lens mount converter B with a LTM-to-M adaptor. This will allow any Canon FD/FL or R mount SLR lens to fit on a M series Leica. I use this combo with my FD 15/2.8 and MP and it works fine
