Not with my copy. It hits my 5D2's mirror. However, I heard 5D3's mirror is a bit shorter. Someone got a 21-35 ASPH which will not clear on 5D2 but works on 5D3.

Modifying old/classing gear, cars or alike to temporary modern needs feels so cruel to me. I plan on getting Lux-50 E60 sooner or later, and perhaps in a next year Sony RX2 or similar FF mirrorless camera from Nikon (Zeiss or Voigtlander?) would solve this Leica-R ‘modification’ issue.
For now, did anyone had any luck with mounting unshaved Lux-R 50 E55 or E60 on Nikon FF (without shaving mirror)? Thanks!

De gustibus non est disputandum...

Personally, I have little nostalgic attachment for purity of "all original" condition. Instead, I consider putting in the effort to keep an old item doing what it was built to do (e.g. letting a lens keep taking pictures, instead of sitting "unspoiled" on a shelf) to be a high tribute to the enduring quality of said item.

OK, I respect your take on it. However, why butcher $4-5k lens with a Dremel tool when it can be used unaltered, perhaps soon, with no ‘modifications’ by future DSLR/mirrorless, Leica M (M240 with an adapter) and R camera owners?

It’s not about the potentially invested $$$ for me, but rather… as you said, De gustibus non est disputandum

Cheers

1- The Lux 50/1.4 E60 mounts with no issues on Nikon Fx (and Dx) cameras.

2- I don't mind modifying a lens to be used on any camera. But I cannot yet bring myself to "Butcher" a very unique lens, the Leica R 15/2.8 Aspherical......still new in it's original box and will stay virgin....at least until the M240 shows up!

My copy of the 50 E60 cleared my 5DII mirror, and still focused at infinity, so it wasn't due to a thick adapter.

180 2.8 APO is one of the best. Amazingly, image quality does not suffer with 1.4x APO even WO and at pixel peeping. It's very compact too! It's one of these R that has the cake and eat it too. 3D like Zeiss with Leica soft rendering style.

Lee, that little read hemisphere on the table is funny! All the power of the lens, focussed into one tiny li'l red dot.

Leica R 80 on 5D2. Aperture was either 1.4 or 2 (or inbetween), I wasn't taking notes.

Nice shots, especially #2. Looks like a toy, with the lighting and blur characteristics
