    I wouldn't bet on that, word gets round on the internet pretty quickly. There aren't many really high quality lenses still available that don't attract stellar prices but there are one or two makes. DSLR using videographers are the main culprits for bumping prices because most prefer manual focus for the lack motor noise. One (nameless*) brand has seen 28mm lenses rise in the last six months from £25-30 to £80-90 and I've seen one selling for £200 this week. It seems a legitimate topic for inquiry, if just to show film users why their favourite glass has just gone through the roof.

    * I still require one for the set.

    They can use google.

    Pretty much every mount that can be adapted has been adapted. Even Miranda and Icarex mounts. It would be a complete waste of time for anybody shooting film to complile a list, unless of course they own lenses in dozens of different mounts and are keen to profit on the recent fad.

    How about this, if you have a lens and are curious if it will work on your digital camera - just look for an adapter. ​If one exists you will find it!

    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
    Not neccesarily. Some of us don't even own a digital PHD camera.

    PHD cameras, do they come with a doctorate built in now, as well as face recognition ?

    I've never heard the expression before, it must be an Americanism.

    Or an Adirondackism. I don't remember where I first heard it, but it was well before the digital camera came on the scene. I have a Pentax IQ Zoom PHD film camera.

    Regarding the original question, I think the list pretty much would be every lens mount ever produced, except for certain ones with electronic connections.

    And this seems to be increasingly true of the Micro Four-Thirds and NEX mounts and the growing number of adapters for each.

    Some lenses like those for the Braun Paxette which have leaf shutters probably can't be adapted to digital.

    Olympus OM lenses suck on digital cameras. Better leave them alone for the film users.

    Digi's have software to correct distortions and misshapen images because they are inferior to film and need that stuff to make a reasonable image. When you substitute 'legacy' lenses for the electronic ones, all the correction is lost and you get worse junk than the junk you normally get from a digi.

    So, stay away from film lenses on digi's and kid yourself into thinking that computer generated junk is a real picture.
