A few days ago I acquired an R 280mm f/4-TELYT-R ROM (late #374...) lens in mint condition, virtually indistinguishable from a new one. This is my first R lens, and I acquired it in lieu of the excellent Leica 90-280 Vario-Elmarit-SL for reasons unrelated to this topic. Needing an adapter, I purchased the Leica R-Adapter-L, instead of a less costly third party adapter. Today marked my first outing with the lens, and I couldn't be more pleased with this setup, except for one issue I encountered. The fit between the camera and the adapter is snug, with no movement whatsoever; however, the fit between the adapter and the lens is not so perfect. When fully engaged, I can twist the lens and it exhibits some slight back and forth movement between the lens and the adapter, perhaps less than one degree, but enough to cause concern, especially given the snug fit at the camera end. This is the only R lenses I own, and so I cannot test the setup with other lenses. I have both the Leica M-Adaper-L and the S-Adapter-L, and I have found no issues with either of them. I am sure that there are others with this R-Adapter-L setup, and I would love to hear from you. Has anyone else encountered this issue? Thanks, Robert
