Whether you’re shooting digitally or on film, Fotodiox offers the
world’s largest selection of lens adapters. Mix camera/lens platforms or
reinvigorate vintage glass; Fotodiox has hundreds of ways to mount
lenses onto your DSLR or SLR camera. Our adapters deliver infinity

Astro Edition adapters are designed specifically with Astro
Photographers in mind and includes an extension tube for focusing with
some telescopes which may have problems adjusting focus far enough out.
The extension tube is removeable revealing a standard T-Mount adapter
for telescopes that focus close enough to the mirror or have a Barlow
lens installed, or if you want to use T-Mount lenses and accessories as
well during the daytime.
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).
