A new forum: adapted lenses?
13

This thread was started as a poll on the M4/3 and it seems to have reached a consensus that a new forum dealing with adapted lenses would be welcomed.

With respect, I think that a similar result might be achieved if the question were put on any other forum where the camera bodies were capable of carrying adapted lenses.

The original talk was about adapting legacy MF lenses.  But it soon became pretty clear that the interest included any lenses adapted to another mount not being its native designed mount.

For example Canon EF lenses are now being successfully adapted to both Sony E/FE and M4/3 mount systems.  Even 4/3 lenses being adapted to M4/3 mount and Alpha mount lenses to Sony E/FE as well.

Leica M and LTM lenses are adapted to many other mount systems.

As are the wealth of film body slr lenses from many sources commonly described as "Legacy MF".

As such a forum for adapted lenses in general seems to be a better fit than the more used but restricted Legacy MF area.

I would appreciate some favourable consideration in this regard from dpreview.
