    Does anyone use a budget Leica M adapter to G1 etc ?
    I have seen widely varying prices from £30 odd , Uk , to £120 , which concerns me a little .
    I would be using a Leica M to Contax RF adapter , double mounted , hence my concern .
    Thanks

    Whilst I've no experience of the Leica M adapter, I've got 2 Leica screw adapters, one from Germany at about £60, the other from Hong Kong at about £20 and I can't detect a difference in workmanship, except the cheaper one is actually marginally heavier.

    M Leica adapter - I have both the RJ one from China and the "official" CV one "made in Japan".

    Both very similar - the CV is better made but not that it is really noticeable

    I am happy with either

    Thanks , the RJ one will suit me fine as the Contax Rf to Leica M is beautiful but expensive !
