Re: What mirrorless body to get for your manual focus lenses?

I use my old Canon FD and Leica M39 lenses on both a Sony NEX 5 and a Fuji xpro1 and both works great. It is an amazing way to give a second life to nice lenses that otherwise would have stayed mostly unused.

If you want to keep the same field of view then you need a FF and I think the only mirrorless body offering it now is Sony.

I think you should try different bodies and see which is the one that fits you better in terms of ergonomics. Check the focus peaking function that is the one that you will most likely use to focus with old lenses.
