Mirrorless cameras aren’t only revolutionary because of their compact
size; they’re even more versatile for mounting lenses than their
full-sized counterparts! Whether you’re shooting digitally or on film,
Fotodiox offers the world’s largest selection of lens adapters with
strong support for mirrorless camera platforms with hundreds of options
for mounting both modern and vintage lenses. Mix camera/lens platforms
or reinvigorate vintage glass; our adapters deliver infinity focus,
manual aperture control, and a sturdy build for lasting quality.
Putting old lenses onto hew, high-performance DSLR or mirrorless
cameras seems counter-intuitive so why would anyone want to? The simple
answer is that many older lenses can capture images that have that
elusive quality known as character. For photographers or videographers
who want to create unique images that express their personal style,
character can be even more important than resolution numbers,
corner-to-corner sharpness, and other advantages of the near perfect
lenses that are quite common today.
The imperfections and aberrations of older lenses are the very
strengths that set them apart from modern lenses. Additionally, a fully
mechanical lens is likely repairable longer and less expensively than
modern focus-by-wire lenses. Old lenses also let you change camera
systems, or your mount can get retired and your lenses won’t be bricked.
At the extreme case, some mirrorless lenses require firmware updates
for every new body, so even if the mount stays around lenses won’t stay
on that update list forever (for instance Nikon’s new E lenses are
incompatible with cameras just two generations old).
The Fotodiox standard adapter is the perfect purchase for anyone
who’s new to using adapter systems or doesn’t switch their lenses often
or are using off brand lenses that may not have been machined to the
exacting specs of the mount they were designed for. An affordable
alternative to our Pro adapter, these adapters can be adjusted to
prevent light leaks and ensure the perfect fit.
Fotodiox adapters feature all-metal, no plastic construction to
create a secure connection between your glass and camera that will not
degrade over time, keeping the lens-camera connection secure with every
use. We use metal mounts for durability and reliability. All Fotodiox
products are backed by our 24-month Fotodiox Manufacturer Warranty.
