Thanks everyone. The standoff between camera manufacturers and 3rd party lens makers is understandable... but a little childish to be still running 40 years on, and somewhat irritating to the consumer.

The way I see it, that irritating childishness is where all the profit comes from. There is no technical reason to have the number of mounts that we have today - particularly APS-C. The sole reason is to keep people contained within a system. If they don't handicap third party and legacy glass, how can they charge more for the new stuff? That goes for all manufacturers.

Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
