Explain this! (Adapted lenses)
Jan 15, 2014

I was told by members of this forum that we can't adapt older 50mm 1.8 lenses to a D5100 because the space for the mirror leaves no room for adapters like on a mirrorless. I told my friend & she was sad. Today, however, she sends me a pic of her D5100 with an old Minolta 50mm on it! And I asked her how she likes the appx 80mm focal length but she replied that it's more like 35mm. She said there is an adapter in there too and paid like $50 for lens & adapter. SHE doesn't know what she did, but I'm guessing she bought some sort of modified lens? I'm confused!

(Pics to come...I'm on the cell phone)
