I don't think it really matters that much. If anything adapters tend to be slightly short so that wideangle lenses can be guaranteed to reach infinity.

In particular with lenses with FLE-designs, the accuracy of the focal flange distance matters a lot, especially on a wide angle.

I don't think Laowa do any tilt lenses yet.

Me neither; would be awesome if Laowa would go into that direction too!

Partly it's the resale argument, but the RF-EF filter adapter is attractive too. Now that there are a couple of third-party RF-EF filter adapters we can hope it's only a matter of time before people start putting filter slots into other DSLR to mirrorless mount adapters.

Are you suggesting I may have a closer look into a few RF-mount cameras as an alternative to the S1R? If so, which one?

Genuinely interested, as currently I am considering my options, and if the RF-system has cameras I may have missed or under-estimated, that could meet my desires, that would be great to know!
