Nikon's biggest advantage over competition...
Nov 6, 2012

...is that they retained the F-mount when at late 80s AF forced the competition to change their mounts.

Now, lots of people can start a great system..., both for photography and video/cinematography, by only adding a camera to ...the grandfather's collection of great glass, or find used for modest amount of money, what other people sell out of their grandfather's great glass collection...

I wonder if Nikon would exist today in case the F-mount was not retained....

Here is what recently came out of the closet, was serviced (calibration, cleaning, lubrication) at very affordable prices, ...to be used for modern MF DSLR video (primarily) and additionally to the modern lenses for photography, ...especially the WAs!
