    • Ecar

      Just a few questions to try and narrow down what the issue might be:

      What LTM to M adapter are you using?

      Can you focus the lens properly throughout the distance range using LV/EVF?

      How much is "considerable backfocus"?

    • LikesLife

      Thx for your rapid response.

      I am using an original Leitz adapter 13.5cm.

      Yes, I get sharp images using the EVF. I do not have the lens with me, but remember to get an object sharp with rangefinder at about 3m (it was Farer away), while focus was at 10m with EVF.

      In the meantime I have checked the adapter: it seems that the cutout at the position of the rangefinder is smaller than that of the bajonett of my M-lens. In addition, the role is pushed back a little bit only by the adapter. Could this be the problem? Thx
