Finally the Fotodiox Leica R adapter to Nikon arrived this afteroon. Fortunately I had the right tools so it about 15 minutes to replace the new mount on the 50 Cron R. It feels excellent and the MF is fast and accurate through the OVF with confirmation AF dot correct. Also in LV with focus peaking it is very easy to focus fast and accurately. Fortunately it is a f/2 so there is probably more DOF leeway than a f/1.0 or 1.4 lens.

Few shots this afternoon at the office. The 50 Cron R on the D850 has all the character of the Mandler lens which I am really pleased. The other feature I love the Mandler lenses is the unusual rendering profile as it lends wonderfully to B&W conversions.

The 50 Cron R is incredibly sharp, even at f/2 as I have attached a 100% Crop.

Shots later this evening in low light with 50 Cron R Mandler

I had previously several copies of the Leica M 50 Cron IV which I had used on the A7r, A7s and A7rII and I never was really happy with the performance.

The 50 Cron R Mandler, I feel is an exceptional lens considering it was made in 1984. With the older lenses there will be some flare if you are not careful, but there is no CA. It will remain in bag alongside the 50 Art and 58G.

Thank you Luka Very nice! The CY 28 is a stunning lens. I did adapt this lens for the A7rII but the sensor cover thickness did not gel well with this lens on the edges.


Michael, stunning shot !!!

This evening I was testing out the D850 with 50 Cron R and 2 SB 5000 flashes in umbrella/softboxes. I was not sure whether the older style of manual lenses like the 50 Cron R would work with the integrated Nikon flash system. I just used aperture priority mode, 64 ISO. The WB and exposure required no adjustment and worked normal both with the OVF and LV modes. I am very impressed

Thank Jannik It just means that if you are using older no CPU lenses you still have the full functionality of the Nikon lighting system. I know it does mention this in the manual but I thought there might be issues. With the Otus and Milvus there is a chip to communicate so the flash can predict the exposure, but it seem just the defining the non CPU lens in the menu is enough. Today I have a mini portrait shoot again and I will try this out alongside the 105E
