All in on adapters an legacy?
In reply to Richard Ettinger, Feb 14, 2013

I just got adapters for Nikon, Olympus and PentaxK and tried out a couple of lenses on 5n. I'm excited but far from convinced - it's fun but not groundbreaking progress for my photography. Main reason: the kit lens is not that bad. It's ok sharp, bokeh is decent, image stabilisation, autofocus, etc, etc.

It's quite hard for any legacy lens to compete with these things. Focus peaking is not reliable, it's not that easy to control shutterspeed and ISO. Makes more sense for video I think. However, very special lenses might provide that special expression. Special being either extremely expensive or extremely cheap
