FF already offers almost all focal lengths and both variable aperture and fixed aperture lenses at those focal lengths. Why would FF users even bother with putting lenses designed for other systems. Its the other systems which DO NOT have as good coverage as the FF cameras that have to resort to adapting lenses from other similar systems. Nikon and Canon both have wide-angle, normal zoom, portrait and wide primes, telephotos at f2.8 and f4 which other systems DONT even come close to having. Yes, you can adapt, and there goes the weight and size argument out of the window. For normal primes Canikon have the option of f1.2, f1.4, f1.8 for every individual requirement. THAT IS CALLED VERSATILITY.

Adapting these lenses to other systems means those systems are depending on FF lenses to overcome their weaknesses or lacking of certain features. You never see FF users trying to adapt lenses from other systems, bcoz they already have all accessories, lenses etc they need.


IDK, I'm quite happy using my Nikon glass on my Olympus body. Plus, there are some pretty cool MFT lenses that are worth looking at.

Voigtlander Nokton 17.5mm f0.95

Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f0.95

Tiny Samyang 7.5mm Fisheye
