Leica R-Adapter L

Today the Leica R-Adapter L starts shipping. The adapter allows to use 43 Leica R lenses with your Leica SL. The price is US$ 750 (680 € in Europe). The availablity is not officially announced by now but several dealers offer the adapter in their shops with a delivery date of July 21st.
