Hi Vince...I am getting some use out of the 1.25x magnifier you sold me. I am wondering what adapter did you use to for the R lens to F mount? Did it maintain any of the automation? I presume the Summicron MF but did ou have any Auto AE ?
Glad you like the 1.25x. I bought it when I had the Noct but have a hard time with it.
As for the R lens, I used the fotodix adapter which is a mount replacement similar to Leitax and also I installed the chip.
here is a link Leica lens for Nikon cameras
No issue whatsoever with most function but of course, the aperture has to be manually adjusted.
Funny how I got the D810 so that I can have an AF camera but ended up with a 50mm cron, 60 elmarit, 100 apo elmarit and 90 cron. All manual lens. The only AF that I have is the 70-200 VR ii f2.8 which I hardly use.
Now that you have the adapter and the Leica lens stable......you need an af enabled film nikon.......like an f100, which you could buy for ridiculous pocket change. Less than the leica magnifier!......just so you could use Nikon af lens. Lots of gas opportunity.
