Re: What is your adapted lens "system"

No management whatsoever. I started with adapting as a way to get new use out of my old Canon FD lenses, but now I see adapted lenses as A) a way to pick best of breed, or best value, for interesting old lenses and B) just a fun way to give new life to lenses that otherwise would probably never create another photograph.

When I go to a photo swap meet, I mainly have adapters in my bag, so I can try out almost anything that someone has for sale.

Having a bunch of cheap adapters is fine because they're cheap, and because it allows you to leave the lenses on the adapters full time.

Yes, if you switch to a different mount you'll need to buy new adapters. I would say, don't do that too often I feel I made a good choice picking E mount back in 2010.
