With all this talk of mirrorless cameras, I thought I'd post that there are still a few available A12 M-mount modules available at Popflash (no affilitation) for those who wish to try the system. I've been trying to get a hold of one of these for a couple of weeks now. Supposedly they will receive a shipment on Monday or Tuesday.
I purchased a Fotodiox adapter to mount my F-mount lenses to the module for now. My kit will be the 3 CV lenses giving me 30mm, 60mm, and 135mm fields of view on this sensor. I also have my Nikon AI-S lenses that will give me 42mm, 75mm, and 115-225mm fields of view. Finally I have my Zeiss lenses for 50mm and 150mm fields of view. Definitely not ideal for the way I shoot, but I build my collection around FX. I'm sure the CV's will see the most use since they'll balance the best, and no more smeary corners from the 20mm lens. Someone on DPR recently posted some Zeiss 100mm photos using the module, we'll see how that goes. It's like using a NEX with that zoom video lens, but you have to MF it!
I've decided that I'm only going to buy M-mount glass that I plan to keep for a long time, and would prefer to save for the best rather than upgrading down the road. It's going to be awhile, but hopefully the household CFO clears me for a lens for the holidays! If so, the plan is for the Zeiss ZM 25mm f/2.8, one of the highest resolving lenses ever made. Fast enough, small enough, sharp enough, and most importantly will act like a 37mm lens, close to my favorite 35mm field of view.
This thread is useless without pics :biggrin: lets see some
