Thank you very much Matt for the very important info. I will be getting the Voigtlander adapter since the dealer is just a couple of blocks from where I live. I hope my 35/2 will have less color shift than the 35/2.8 due to the less compact design, but I may be wrong on this one.


I'd definitely recommend getting one of the M adapters with a focusing helicoid, like the Hawk's adapter. The Hawk's is built quite well, and the improvement in MFD really opens up how you can use rangefinder lenses.


I got a Hawk's knock-off on ebay. It was around $35 USD, and the build is terrible. All thin aluminum, very loosey-goosey as the helicoid extends out to the point there was wobble. It was a springless friction mount, and I also made the mistake of rotating the lens the wrong way to get it off, such that the lens mount dug into the aluminum and scraped off the black paint. That said, it was really cool seeing what the ZM25/2.8 could do with close focus. The detail was ridiculous. I'm considering going all in and getting a Hawk's.

Matt, nice cacti. The Voigt 90 is a super sharp little lens. Was the adapater you got by any chance the "L.M.E." one? I have been doing some research on it and have heard some similar comments.

This one cracks me up. My 20-month-old would be doing less studying and more gobbling.

Thanks Jacob. The one I bought can be found on eBay searching by "NEX Leica helicoid", seller is cardany_chan. I'm much happier with the build of my Fotodiox Pro (non-helicoid). It works well with all of my lenses, and I can just about rely on the hard infinity stop at f/5.6. It does have a big release tab which bumps up against my finger, but at least the edges are smooth and polished.

These shots were taken today with my 135mm F3.5 Zeiss Jena on a Nex 5n. I was never happy with this lens on a Sony SLT A77. Since I moved totally to NEX, I am slowly adding adapters and trying out some of my old lenses. I can't explain it but the lens seems sharper on the Nex.

This one was taken with a NEX-5N and 16mm 2.8. I had no tripod, so I held it against the window. It took many tries to get one without too much camera shake and had decent trails of light.
