    Yes, and these idiots are causing the prices on some of these film camera lenses to go to stupid high levels. To me this is an example of the camera companies killing off lenses with a single focal length to concentrate on the production of zooms. Epic fail on the part of "modern" camera design.

    Please provide a listing of which 35mm analog mounts can be employed for digital...

    Something going on, even in the digital world, that might be affecting the prices on our gear traditionally used for analog film use, sure is a subject I'd like to hear about here.

    Agreed. It explains why some lenses are getting stupidly expensive while others can barely be given away.

    The subject heading is perfectly clear. If you don't want to read about it then just skip over it. No need to post negative one-liners.

    I think it's that this is a film only forum, I recently was asking about film scanners and was shut down because scanning is not about film it's about computer which is digital, I would take this convo to the DPUG forum because its bound to be closed down soon anyway since its partially about digital cameras even if its about film lenses.

    I don't like it either(these strange rules) but its how it is here. Also apparently DPUG is actually a Hybrid photo forum that IMHO was miss-named HPUG "h-pug" for Hybrid Photography Users Group or ADHPUG "add-pug" for Analog & Digital Hybrid Photography Users Group.

    Anyway it's DPUG instead, but it's hybrid, this is perfect for their forum

    While I am certainly 'available' to be criticized for posting upon the 'wrong' forum I did think carefully about the venue before creating this thread.

    I honestly thought that people used to film lenses would be in the BEST position to determine which mounts go onto digital cameras. Reason: because the vast majority of film users segued INTO digital (and not the other way around). In other words, those that know ONLY digital could not possibly be expected to know the various lens mounts that us older folks grew up with. That was my reasoning but I am, again, certainly open to re-assessment. - David Lyga

    Since we are discussing using lenses made for analog cameras for use on digital cameras EITHER forum can be considered to be proper for this thread. I could say something very impolite about posters who take it upon themselves to do the job of the monitors. But ENOUGH ALREADY and let's get back to the question of the OP.
