L-Mount to PL Mount Pro (Panasonic and Leica)
L-Mount to PL Mount Pro (Panasonic and Leica) is a shimmable version of our PL lens mount adapter that enables mounting of PL mount lenses onto the Panasonic and Leica L-Mount cameras. Mount includes a foot with 1/4-20 threaded hole for attaching to a tripod eliminating strain on the camera. The foot can also attach directly to the front of the Unified DSLR Cage (Medium) by two included screws. PL Cap included to prevent dust from entering sensor area when lens is not attached.
If you are using the L-Mount to PL Mount Pro (Panasonic and Leica) without a camera cage, you can use the included WC Lens Adapter Universal Support Foot to attach directly to the bottom of your camera and lens mount. This allows all the weight to be transferred from the lens mount to the bottom of the camera to avoid any flexing or damage that could occur when using heavier lenses.
In our factory, we set the flange focus using collimation tools. You only need to adjust the shims should you find that your camera is out of calibration. The adapter is shimmable by loosening six socket cap screws around the collar area, separating the two sections, and adding color coded shims of various thickness. Back focus should be checked using collimation tools or a wide lens focused to infinity.
