NEW: LEICA CAMERA AG EXPANDS LENS COMPATIBILITY FOR THE LEICA S-SYSTEM

Leica S-Adapters allow for the use of medium-format lenses from other manufacturers

Solms, Germany (July 15, 2011) - Leica Camera AG is expanding the range of accessories for the Leica S2 professional camera system with three new Leica S-Adapters. Beginning August 2011, these latest accessories will allow users to attach medium-format lenses from other manufacturers to Leica S bodies.  The Leica S-Adapter V can be used for Hasselblad V System lenses, the Leica S-Adapter P67 for the Pentax 67 system lenses and the Leica S-Adapter M645 for the lenses of the Mamiya 645 system.

The S-Adapters offer many benefits to professional photographers. As a result of being able to use third-party lenses on the Leica S2, photographers now have access to a wider selection of additional lenses, further increasing the S-System’s flexibility. Furthermore, photographers who already own lenses from the aforementioned systems can now use them on the Leica S2. This extension of the compatible lens range includes tilt and shift. As with all products in the Leica S portfolio, the Leica S-Adapters are manufactured to extremely high specifications. The exclusive use of high-quality materials, anodized aluminium and chrome-plated brass, in construction makes the adapters durable and reliable, even with constant use.

Leica S-Adapter V H=30.2 mm (1.2 in); W=81 mm (3.2 in) 138.75 g (4.9 oz)
Leica S-Adapter M645 H=15.5 mm (.61 in); W=78 mm  (3.1 in) 93.5 g (3.3 oz)
