Canon EF to Leica CL adapter, Sigma MC-21

Recommended Posts

It looks like the Sigma MC-21 adapter might work for Canon lenses.  For Sigma lenses it will work on the SL and CL unlike the Novoflex.  One article I read says it will work on Canon, one mentioned it might work on some Canon lenses.  I hope it works with the Canon lenses.  I know the lenses will be big on the CL, but at least it will give me some options until I can build up a better Leica lens collection.

In my above post I was referring to the Novoflex Canon EF adapter not working on the CL.

Neither adapters Novoflex nor Sigma work with CL. Its battery is too weak to power EF adapted lenses. What a shame.

I believe you are correct, I just noticed another post here about that adapter.  Apparently any camera made before the “L mount alliance” was announced will not work with it.  Makes no sense but I guess Leica doesn’t want 3rd party lenses to take away lens sales.  I suppose the future Leica camera bodies will take them but they don’t exist at this time.

Compatibility with other cameras
When we announced the MC-21 on February 26th, 2019, we mentioned that it was compatible with cameras manufactured by Leica Camera AG. However, the specifications have changed and it will not be compatible with Leica’s existing L-Mount cameras. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this situation may have caused.
