I am looking for a lens adapter/converter similar to the Fotodiox Mount Adapter for Canon FD Lens to Leica M-Series Camera. However, the lens is a Sony E/NEX mount and the camera body is a leica L/M mount. Is there such a thing or will I need more than one adapter to achieve the desired outcome? I should note that I am trying to mount my Sony 28-75mm lens to a Fotodiox Pronto Pro (manual to autofocus adapter) which only accepts Leica L/M lenses to NEX camera body (Sony A7iii). Adorama says they don't carry this item... only the reverse. Any help is appreciated.

Since the aperture is controlled electronically on E-mount lenses, you'll have to find an adapter -- if one even exists -- that will enable you to dial in an aperture value. Good luck in your search. I reckon if anybody makes one, Metabones might be one place to look.

What is the point to use a Sony AF lens on M mount body? There is a tri-elmar 24-35-50 made for M mount cameras.

I may misunderstand what you are trying to do here, but if you are going to mount a Sony E mount lens onto a Sony E mount camera why do you need adapters? Of course just about anything can be done but whether it makes sense to do so is another matter.

On the other hand, doing nonsensical things can be fun. The AF of the lens won't work nor will its electronic aperture. And since the Fotodiox adapter and the Sony E mount to Leica M mount adapter will add extension to your optical system, infinity focus won't be possible. But using the front ring of a cheap screw mount chinese extension ring set (Sony E to M57) a stepping ring from M57 to M39 (or several to attain the same result) and a M39 to Leica M adapter it can be done.
