Novoflex has shown two new products that are definitely of interest to Leica owners.  Products for close and macro photography have long been a specialty of Novoflex.  They have now expanded their product range with a reversing adapter for the Leica L-Mount (Leica, Panasonic, Sigma).

Most standard lenses, when used for macro photography will show a noticeable increase in performance when mounted to the camera in a reversed position.

These new reversing adapters allow magnification greater than with most macro lenses with fixed focal lengths as well as most zoom lenses.  The new adapters maintain all functions between camera and lens. They come with a standard 58 mm filter thread. For lenses with filter diameters from 37 mm to 82 mm, adapters are available.  A high-quality, multi-layered protection filter made by Heliopan to protect the sensitive lens rear lens is also available.

The ‘Umkehradapter’ is availabl;e for 349 euros.

Bellows have been part of Novoflex since 1969. Owners of a Leica SL and other L-mount cameras are now able to take advantage of a new automatic bellows.

All control information between camera and lens are maintained.  Even with standard camera lenses reproduction ratios of 1:1 and larger can be achieved.  In addition, Novoflex recommends the high-resolution, apochromatically corrected Apo Digitar 4.5 / 90 mm lens head from Schneider Kreuznach, which allows focusing from 1:1 to infinity.

The lenses can also be used in retro position on the bellows with the automatic reversing adapter offered by Novoflex.

The automatic bellows is799 euros. The FLEX-APO-DIGI 4,5 / 90 is available for € 1,099.
