- Yes, I mean the mount would hit the mirror.
- I vaguely recall the conversation was on a French forum.
Have a look at these on ebay:
Compare the mount of the ROM first one to the mount on 2 and 3 and it is clear that it is a different mount althoug all have the fixed hood!
If my memory is correct, only the 11333 ROM ones will not hit the mirror. Although the 11259 CAM ones have also the same fixed hood. All have the same optics.
To summarize, The Leica R Elmarit 28/2.8 Version II order number 11333 with ROM is...Show more →
I guess when you say mount you mean shroud, i.e. the plastic/metal bit surrounding the rear element. I don't quite understand how the shroud differing on the 11259 and 11333 lenses is related to whether or not it is a V1 or V2, as you mentioned earlier? Clearly, these are all the same optical design, and only the package differs.
The whole issue of whether or not a given lens hits a given mirror when adapted is very difficult, especially given the Canon 5D, 5DIII and maybe 5DIII have widely varying mirror distances, even among the same model. The reports here show that quite demonstrably, where some people don't have problems, other people have only problems, and some people sometimes have problems, and sometimes not.
I don't think we have enough data to say that the 11333 doesn't hit any mirror, although it does appear to tend in that direction. The 11259 clearly also does not always hit the mirror, but maybe more often so. We need more information, and should not post hasty conclusions based on too little data.
