I can't say whether your specific camera / lens combination will work, but bear in mind all teleconverters result in some loss of image sharpness (especially 2X models.) You will also lose about 2 stops of light.

Sigh... There's just no real alternative for big, fast glass :-)

Looking for a lens adaptor to allow 39mm screw lens to fit an M2 camera body


You just need a Leica M to Leica screw adapter. Note that this will be different to the adapter you need if you want to use non-Leica 39mm screw thread lenses as the thread pitch is different.

There are various suppliers but you can find the information you need here and here. The links are for convenience only and not a personal recommendation of any supplier.

Hope this helps, if not then please add a comment and I'll offer further assistance. Otherwise please take a moment to rate my answer.

Where can I get various problems with my Leica C11 repaired or overhauled? Basically, it need a new rubberized back panel (chemical damage?) and the zoom is sluggish or stuck much of the time. I love this...


Hi David, thanks for the extra info.

In that case, the best place by far for your particular camera is Leica's own service centre in Germany.

The C11 sold in such tiny numbers for such a brief time that even Leica themselves may have trouble replacing the rubberised back panel with an original part, but if anyone does have the ability to locate the part it's them. The other problem is that the original part was clearly an unstable compound, so spares may have degraded as well or may soon start to degrade once fitted to your camera. Leica would normally have revised this part once they were aware, but as there are so few C11's in existence the retooling costs would be uneconomical to remanufacture the part.

Good luck, and I sincerely hope that I'm proved wrong!.
