Converting Leica R lenses to Nikon F mount

I received a pair of Leica R to Nikon F bayonets from Leitax at the last day of 2012 (Thanks to David @ Leitax). It turns out to be easy conversions including 60mm Macro-Elmarit. I thought the conversion procedure is technically challenging, but it actually isn't that complicated. I am happy with the quality of the bayonets and the friendly service from Leitax. I highly recommend Leitax to anyone who's looking for Leica R to Nikon conversions. I am glad that I still hold on to these two lenses after Leica abandoned R10 plan.
