Help me build a m43 system, on a budget.
Nov 29, 2013

Hi there,

Hope you folks can help me out with this.

I've currently a Sony A7 on preorder with Amazon and I've been following both forums (Sony NEX and m43) for a few days to the point that I might want to seriously consider a m43 alternative to the A7.


I have a set of vintage manual lenses that I want to keep:

Canon FD 17/4

Nikkor AI 20/3.5

Vivitar Nikon fit 28/2.8

Samyang 35/1.4

Helios 44-3 58/2

Canon FD 50/4 macro

Canon FL 58/1.2

Samyang 85/1.4 (Canon ED mount)

Nikkor 105/2.5

Canon FD 200/2.8

Tair-3S 300/4.5 M42

Question: how much sense will it make keep this particular lense lineup with a m43 system

Considering I am on a limited budget (say 1500 Euros / 1800 USD) what would you suggest as a stable system for me to purchase, knowing that I need a good EVF, possibly wifi, IBIS (a +), and one or two primes to go with?

I know it seems a lot. is it doable?
