p.1 #1 · Nikon help with alt lens


Hello you Nikon guys, I'm a Canon gear guy but wish I had the 800E to go with my 5d3
My question since I know nothing about Nikon bodies is

My friend has a D5100 and will that body take some of the alt lenses like Olympus and Contax/Zeiss without problems using the adapters ?

Thanks for any info and help, Mike

Nope, you have to take off the rear mount and then Leitax them (if Leitaxing works for those particular lenses).

It's not nearly as easy to use alt lenses as it is on Canon bodies. I have sold my CZ's and have kept a couple of OM's primarily for NEX.

Good to see ya around, BTW, Mickey.

YF,

Sure - the OM Leitax kits are pretty ugly. At least on my OM21. It leaves the whole back side of the lens open to dust and whatnot. I am really not a fan of it.

Will catch up with you on PM tomorrow, my friend.
