Sigma is now offering services to change the lens mount, you can read more about it on the "Change Your Mount" page. The only problem is that they offer it for a limited number of lenses and 24/2.8 isn't in that list. Your best bet would be to get FD - EF adapter with optical element inside, so you would be able to retain infinity focus, although none of ...

For what it is worth, NIKON-lenses, an off-site search reveals more information. https://www.google.se/?gfe_rd=cr&safe=off#q=nikon%20lens%20compatibility&safe=off One of the hits refers to "Ken R" - he generally has facts OK, but may deviate quite a bit on 'opinion'. http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/compatibility-lens.htm This is as useful: ...

As someone who occasionally indulges in bird photography, shoots micro four-thirds, and has adapted manual lenses to her Canon dSLRs, I'd say don't do it. The lens will be disproportionately big and heavy compared to your G5, and the lack of autofocus (and EXIF, and aperture control from the body unless the lens has an aperture ring) will probably be more ...

Yes, you can use vintage/film Nikon F-mount (AI and later) lenses on a Nikon D3200, but you probably don't want to use adapters to use other mounts. Nikon F has one of the thickest registration distances of any SLR mount. This distance is how far the lens is held from the image plane, and needs to be maintained if the lens is to focus to infinity, as ...

What matteres is not the manufacturer of a lens, but its lens mount. In fact, there are two things that have to be considered. First and most important aspect is probably the flange focal distance. This is the distance from the mounting flange (the metal ring on the camera and the rear of the lens) to the film plane. In order to achieve infinit focus, this ...

Provided the lens either fits the mount or has a compatible adaptor, you can use pretty much any lens with any camera. However, there are almost always limitations: Autofocus: the 3200 has no in-camera focus drive. Very few (if any) 'vintage' lenses have built in autofocus motors, let alone the CPU connection to control them, so you will be limited to ...

It is possible, but not ideal. You cannot use a simple ring adapter, because the registration distance for Olympus OM mount is smaller than that of Pentax K. And as you can't simple jam the lens back into the camera body the required distance, if you use a simple ring adapter, and have the lens sitting too far forward, it's like using a macro extension ...

If you are speaking of a micro four-thirds Olympus m.Zuiko or four-thirds or e.Zuiko lens, then no, you cannot use them. Not only is the registration distance (the distance from the sensor to the lens mount) much smaller than Nikon F mount (which means you could not achieve focus at infinity with the lens without an adapter with a glass element to act as a ...

Unfortunately, no. I'm going to assume that the lens you are interested in is a current Micro 4/3rds Olympus lens, but this is true for vintage "OM" lenses as well. The Olympus cameras have a shorter flange distance — basically, the lenses mount closer to the camera, which is the reverse of the situation where an adapter can work. (It might be theoretically ...
