So glad Pentax isn't making a mirrorless now!

What about the FTZ adapter that is touted to let you use over 360 F-mount lenses on the Z-series.

I haven't been following the Canon EOS-R rumors. But Canon released an EF to EOS-M adapter so I don't see why they wouldn't release a EF to EOS-R adapter too.

Edit: gee look at this:

Canon released a FD to EOS adapter. The drawback is that the front element protrudes so can only be used on some lenses - mainly the expensive L series telephotos.

There are adapters that allow you to use Pentax MF K and screwmount lenses. Witness the uproar when people amputate the stop down lever on K mount lenses like the 50mm f/1.2 so they can be used on Canon FF bodies.

Nikon cripples their lower end bodies so they don't even support screwdrive AF along with stop-down metering and the various mechanical linkages on MF lenses. However their higher end bodies support stop-down metering. And why else would companies make M42 to Nikon mount adapters if you couldn't use MF lenses on Nikon? And like Pentax and Minolta/Konica Nikon had a TC, the TC-16, that gave limited AF ability to MF lenses. There's a way to get around the lack of metering linkages with MF lenses that involves using exposure compensation, I don't recall the details.

There's a review video of one of the Laowa/Venus lenses that is full manual on Nikon and the reviewer should how to meter and set the exposure using EC. I just shook my head and thought of all the people who gripe about the crippled K-mount and using the green button. The lower end Nikon users should have it so good.
