accept the widest range of older lenses. This, plus the fact that most CSCs offer Aperture Priority automation and several focussing aids has led to many people to start using their old lenses, many of which give excellent image quality and have a sold build. Plus, there is always the delight of manual focussing. Some of the older generation MF lenses (example Canon FD, Olympus OM series), while are excellent even by today’s standards, can’t be used on current cameras at all as no compatible cameras are being made. These were really at a dead end till CSCs and adapters gave them a new lease of life. The best part is that both – the old lenses and the adapters – cost just a fraction of current lenses. While you have a few constraints (like lack of AF, etc.) they are capable of great results. Try them and you will be pleasantly surprised.
