The impossible has been made possible. Camera MX transformed a [shoplink 17307 ebay]Leica Summicron 35mm f/2.0[/shoplink] manual focusing M-mount lens in a sort of E-mount version with full autofocus support! You may argue how the heck that can be done…so here is the text I got form the “inventor” of this solution (from Chinese companies MX Camera):
“We put a [shoplink 17307 ebay]Leica M 35mm f/2[/shoplink] into a [shoplink 17308 ebay]Contax G Biogon 28mm f/2.8[/shoplink]. When use with our Contax G – NEX AF adapter, it will come a NEX-AF lens!! And the result is quite good! We will make a video for it very soon. We try so many different Leica rangefinder lens and the result, the best match is [shoplink 17307 ebay]35mm[/shoplink] and [shoplink 17309 ebay]50mm f/2[/shoplink] or small aperture lens with Biogon 28mm lens body.”
And they are now going to test the same “technique” with the [shoplink 17310 ebay]35mm f/3.5 (here on eBay)[/shoplink], [shoplink 17307 ebay]Summicron 35mm f/2 (here on eBay)[/shoplink], [shoplink 17309 ebay]Summicron 50mm f/2 (here on eBay)[/shoplink], [shoplink 17311 ebay]Elmar 90mm f/4 (here on eBay)[/shoplink]. There is no plan yet to commercialize that kind of lenses.
