Tina my two cents is that any adaptor that may allow your expensive lens to
fall off is no bargain, especially when you consider your outlay for the
camera and lenses.
With your VF2 (or the Leica branded one),the newest firmware is designed to
address any occasional lockups. Also WB defaults and any residual edge
issues with some wides. I haven't tried it yet as my camera is with the
repair agent. Leica (Australia) are loaning me another one and a 50 for a
portfolio builder shoot this weekend. I'll be interested to hear anything
they have to say on it since its release. I wasn't a tester this time
