  • Leica code nos. - 14256 (3-cam R-only) - 14299 (ROM)
  • Dedicated R-extension tubes - 14262 for the 100mm f/4 Macro-Elmar-R (shown on right) - 14198 for the 60mm f/2.8 Macro-Elmarit-R
  • Type - The LEICA MACRO-ADAPTER-R extends the focusing range of Leica R lenses out by 30 mm. It not only retains the automatic diaphragm function and full-aperture metering, but also keeps the aperture priority and manual exposure adjustment modes fully usable. The LEICA MACRO-ELMARIT-R 60 mm f/2.8 is specially tailored for use with the LEICA MACRO-ADAPTER-R. The magnifications attainable with the adapter are engraved on its adjustment screw. In combination with this lens, a magnification to 1:1 is possible - at an object distance of just 97 millimeters. To cite another example: When using the LEICA APO-TELYT-R 280 mm f/4 together with the LEICA MACRO-ADAPTER-R, a magnification of 1:2.9 can be attained at a shooting distance of one meter.
