Hi, I am very interested to know if there is any mount adapter (with electronic pins if its posible) for using Fujifilm or Sony alpha lenses.
I want to buy the Leica CL but their lens offer is quite expensive and Fujifilm has a wider lens offer and pretty much afordable.

Maybe, but apart from the fact that Leica lenses are (even) better than Fuji ones,  lenses in general perform better on the cameras that are designed for them. Why shouldn't you use a Fuji body with a Fuji lens? Or a Sony body with a Sony/Zeiss lens?

Quite apart from the fact that there are no adapters.

 

If you want to save money on lenses get the M adapter and go for Voigtländer lenses that are quite affordable, especially used ones.

Fuji glass is very good and is best supported by a Fuji body.  Why would you even want to shoot it on a body other than Fuji?

Stack adapters? The Fuji register distance is 17.7 mm, the L mount one 19.0 mm. How are you going to do that? Even a single adapter is utterly impossible, the lens would never reach infinity..

Fujifilm makes great lens and most of third party lens are avaiable for fujinon or sony system. for a leica lens which is  more or less 2000 dollars I can buy 2/3 prime lenses of fuji system.

But their cameras are full of useless buttons, chunky look with bad choices of design trying to make them retro forgetting the fact some retro things are not useful at all; this is why I  obviously I want a Leica CL is the best mirrorless APS-C camera right now (ignoring the fact of non image stabilization and articulated screen and (i'm not sure about this) no weather sealing.

Welcome to the forum. Not sure if such an adapter is possible but i haven't heard of it so far. Too bad as the Fuji 18/2 performs quite well on my X-E2 and doesn't produce ghost images around highlights contrary to the Leica 23/2, according to this thread at least: https://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/282940-ugly-lens-flare/. Another digitally corrected lens though...

Is there any DIY tutorial how to make your own adapter? Maybe is not such a hard thing to do. Well I guess making work autofocus lens would be hard.

No, as adapting  micro 4/3rds lenses to the L mount is impossible for technical reasons: the lens is too long and will sit too far from the sensor. It is called register distance.

 

Leica L is 19.00 mm, MFT 19.25. The difference is 0.25 mm  and you need space for the adapter

Fujifilm Fujinon system and Leica CL have same APS-C sensor size. so lens are both for same system.

No, as the bayonet is totally different. Sensor size has nothing to do with it. The Fuji register is 17.70 mm. A 1.55 mm adapter is not very likely and the other way impossible.

You would need a hacksaw, not an adapter.

      Hi guys, 
      I am sure this topic is covered over and over again, but I can't help starting a new thread to help me out in a very difficult decision. It feels like a very difficult decision anyway. 
      Some background: I have been photographing for the past 15 years, and for a few of those professionally. I have been a strong Nikon fan throughout (sorry for swearing in the church), but have also owned and used a lot of film cameras, such as Mamiya, Hasselblad 2000FCW, Canon and Nikon 35mm film cameras. I would say i am a fairly decent photographer with, maybe, a bigger passion and lust than talent. :)
      Two years ago soon my son was born, and I just didn't bring the big cameras with me any longer, and I missed capturing those moments. I stopped all professional photography to make time for family and my day job. I sold all my other cameras, DSLRs and film alike to buy a new, smaller, more handy one. That I actually would bring with me everywhere and take photos. I never bought one, and now I miss I so much. So I started the hunt for the best camera for ME. 
      I have been googling, foruming all across, and I just don't know how to drill it down any further and decide on the actual camera to buy. One thing I do know is that it is going to be a Leica. I just love Leicas philosophy, the picture quality, the "to the roots" thing, and I have decided once and for all that now is the time for me to finally own a Leica. 
      I also know that I am on a budget. Coming in at a total of 2000 USD would be ideal - but if course, Leica is not cheap and there are many factors here. So anywhere between 1000-3000 USD is something I look at. 
      For that money you could buy either a Leica CL kit brand new, Leica TL2 brand new, a used Leica Q, used Leica M9. 
      I am not a rangefinder guy really, but I really like the concept. However, I will use the camera for many different scenarios such as travel photo, family photo, art works that I do, and just general hobby/art photography. 
      I don't do any studio work any longer, so that I don't need, I don't do street photography in that sense, and I don't to long tele situation photography like concerts or sports. So basically, I do everyday photography and would like my photos to be nice to have, maybe frame them, and if I find time again start taking art work photos again. But let's focus on travel, everyday life typ photo. 
      Now - what do you guys think? Where should I place my bets? I guess many of you have tried many of the cameras - which one do you believe I will be happier with?
      Thank you so much! I appreciate all and any input!
