I guess it all depends on the type of lens, bigger longer lenses are less likely to sell.

Smaller lenses are another story, especially now the GH3 has been released.

Nah. If you want a fast long telephoto, adapted lenses are the only choice you've got. I've seen several people around here doing some really nice widlife photos with FD mount Canon "L" and Nikkor ED lenses.

If you want small lenses the native primes are generally smaller and often better than the legacy lens options at the same focal length.

What's the GH3 got to do with it?


Okay...? still don't understand.

I mean, I understand that the GH3 is a very good video camera. Are you thinking about old cine lenses maybe? I'm just not following where you're going with this.
