If you want to avoid mirror collision issues with a Canon full frame altogether, shave the mirror, get a 1‑series camera, or (mostly) avoid wide angle lenses. Learning about mirror collision is just part of the fun and games when it comes to adapting manual lenses to the Canon prosumer full frame bodies. I think the only brand of the six that are ...


It's almost certainly a co-incidence. Adaptability of foreign lenses wasn't a big thing back then in the SLR world (it was more common with medium format cameras). The simple reason for this was that camera bodies were much cheaper as they were essentially just light tight boxes with a shutter, mirror and viewfinder (you might get electronic metering or an ...


If you read Canon's public statements at the time the EOS system/EF mount was introduced in the late 1980's, they spoke of the longer 44mm registration distance and larger diameter flange of the EF mount, when compared to their existing FD mount that had a registration distance of 42mm, as leaving room for future capabilities. If they had been concerned with ...


There are no such adapters, because the Leica M lenses have a registration distance that would put the lens inside the Canon's body if you wanted to achieve focus to infinity. Canon's mount distance from the sensor is roughly twice that of a Leica M's mount from the sensor/film plane. The distance the lens is held is part of the mount system design and is ...


This is not possible. The flange distance of M mount is 27.8mm while EF mount is 44mm. The lens would function as an extreme macro lens only on EF mount, so no one makes Leica M to Canon EF adapters.


I use PK mount lenses on my Lumix G1 with a PK to M4/3 adapter. As the previous responder has said, usage is restricted to Av aperture priority or M Manual modes. But that is fine the lenses work well like this and mirrorless cameras have certain advantages over using legacy lenses on dslr's not least the "focus assist" modes to help with focus ie ...


Generally speaking, it will work, for varying definitions of "works". There won't be any autofocus, and you'll have to set the aperture using the lens ring, so you'll probably be stuck in either aperture-priority or full manual shooting modes. And unless the adapter tube is chipped, you probably won't have AF confirmation or the lens EXIF information. But ...


No. There are several problems here. This lens looks a lot like the Senko 50mm f/0.95, i.e., it is a C-mount lens for 1" format video. This lens vignettes even on micro four-thirds (2x crop). There's no way the image circle will cover an APS-C or full-frame camera, and the registration distance is much much smaller than that of Nikon F. In order to get the ...


No, because the register (distance from the mounting flange of the lens to the sensor plane) is quite short.
