If it were as easy as a simple tube, which is the adapter without the auto
feature, there is no reason that it would not have been available now.  It
is so trivial, that the Chinese copy cats have probably already done it.....
( somewhat tongue in cheek.)... Checking after I wrote that, I found that
Novoflex has the adapter ( dumb, no auto feature), called the LET/LER.  So
you can use your R lenses on your SL body, as soon as they ship them.....

That is the primary reason I think that it will the Auto feaqture..... that
it is taking a year to come out.....

I have no real info, nor am I on the inside track at Leica.....  I am purely

But if it did have the Auto feature, it would be the single most brilliant
implementation Leica has had since the LTM to M adapters..... about 1953.

Actually I was told by a Leica rep at PhotoExpo that the R adapter would not
have an auto stop down mechanism. Of course he could be wrong, or they might
