Nope there is a compromised as you already admitted, more or less. Longer FL, more compromises as nobody shoot Canon long EF lenses on R bodies in sport and wildlife except for testing purposes.

That's a limitation of the camera, not the fact that they are adapted lenses.

LOL. As I said let wait and see when R5 released that adapted lenses can shoot full 20fps with full AF/AE? I know you have a wishful thinking. Hope you will get a R5 and test then but I will not count on it

The fact that Canon supports all of their current EF lenses via adapter with full AF and AFC is a big win for Canon vs Sony, in the transitional user support department.

canon made ef-m incompatible with eos-r, that's not a win, it's a fail.

Meh. It's par for the course with Canon. They didn't want migration from EF-M and they didn't want people using EF-S lenses on EF bodies.

point is that it's par for the course for all companies to place arbitrary limits on compatibility.

constantly trying to single out sony, when sony is more compatible than canon, is rather ridiculous.

canon doesn't have crop eos-r, where is the canon milc path to ff? even Nikon has the z50 now.

Nikon doesn't have any screw-mount adapter for people migrating to z-mount.

As stated many times before, Nikon stopped using screw drive a long time ago (they never had a screw mount).

it's a screw-drive mechanism that mounts between lens and body, with no way to use it on z-mount.

never claimed that it was a lens mount.

Sony still has screw drive lenses in their lineup.

Nikon still sells brand new af-d lenses that require screw-drive, see four of 'em listed at b&h:

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?ci=274&fct=fct_brand_name%7cnikon%2bfct_lens-mount_3316%7cnikon%2bfct_lens-types-for-full-frame-cameras_3321%7cstandard%2bfct_a_focus-type_5738%7cautofocus%2bfct_lens-series_3327%7cnikon-af-d&N=4288584247

No. B&H still has NOS Nikon screw drive lenses available. They are not in Nikon's current catalog, which is here:

https://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/lens/f-mount/

because they are nos, aka new old stock, which isn't going to be listed in the catalog.

nikon is still selling 'em via distributors, which is why they have a nikon warranty:

"Limited 1-Year Warranty
Limited 4-Year USA Warranty Extension with Online Registration"

if it was b&h buying up nos glass, there wouldn't be any manufacturer warranty.

Sony, on the other hand, still has a bunch of non-SAM, non-SSM, lenses, here:

https://www.sony.com/electronics/lenses/t/camera-lenses?cameramount=a-mount&sensor-lens=35mm-full-frame

yes, because sony still supports a-mount, Nikon doesn't.

that just proves my point.

Nikon owners are not happy about it: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4324733

Sure. Some Nikon owners aren't happy about it. And hope that Sony, or somebody, will offer a screw drive adapter eventually. There's still the facts that Nikon had a lot less (basically zero) recent screw drive lenses

see above...

and the functionality provided for the non screw drive lenses on their adapter is better than LA-EA3 offers on any A7 series camera for the handful of lenses it supports.

1) nikon shut down the v1 series line,

2) nikon shut down the keymission cameras,

3) nikon does not support their own screw-drive af.

that's the history of nikon, they are willing to leave customers in the lurch.
