Maybe im stupid but what is TAP? Ive seen it mentioned over the last few pages?
leica M to E mount adapter that can autofocus. Basically an autofocus anything adapter as long as you can adapt to leica M. Lenses like the CV 40 would mount direct to the adapter and would able to AF right off the bat, same with your lux if you still have it. Older vintage lenses would simply need to adapt to leica M mount to have AF ability. The adapter has fake aperture readings and needs to be set to F2 all the time to trick the system. Set it to F11 - f32 to select whatever focal length you assign. For instance, I have F25 assigned to 24mm, F20 assigned to 200mm, and F16 assigned to 15mm, F18 assigned to 85mm..... I know it's all over the place, but there's some reasoning for the assigned numbers, related focal lengths. So if I mount the 85, I go to F18, take a snap, then go back to F2. My exif will show 85mm and IBIS works automatically for 85mm. Pretty darn cool. I have adapters for Nikon, Olympus, and Canon EF.
