Re: Explain this! (Adapted lenses)

I'm sorry that the first two responders did not read your Original Post.

I'm not interested in using other lens mount lenses on my Nikons, but I think the problem is the lens 'registration distance' that Nikon uses is longer than other brands so adapters have to have glass elements included to get the focus correct. This extra glass elements gets in the way of focus at infinity, and my cause the lens to give a different field of view.
