| p.1 #12 · Suggestion on best DSLR/mirrorless for MF lenses? |
Some pearls from above resonate: I need to consider an interim solution because you're right, something better and FF will present imminently. And though focus peaking is fantastic, an A99 requires new mounts for everything. I am really drawn to the Fuji (have an old IS-Pro and the colors -using a UV/IR cut filter- are really something unique compared to the D200) and the software updates seem on the way to addressing the crazy fractal-like issues on some files from the new sensor. I have Leitaxed the Leica crew (28 v2, 90AA, 100 Makro, 180 Elmarit APO, 280 Telyt APO) so getting a Metabones for Nikon would solve the immediate issues. May be worth renting a NEX and a Speedbooster-for-Nikon (due out next month). The Leica M is bocoup cash at $10k for a limited digital camera when all is said and done, and remains unproven. That may be worth a wait and see. The D700 hasn't much budged in price, I guess, as mentioned above, nothing quite like it out there.
You guys are good!
Now that most of the raw converters do an ok job with Fuji X-Trans files, it's a matter of picking slightly better high ISO with Fuji vs. slightly better lower ISO with Nex. Pick your poison.
I personally wouldn't buy an EVF based camera without focus peaking, if I was buying it for manual lenses.
