Re: Canon FD glass?

Asif, we'll have to agree to disagree on that topic. Let's come back to this thread a few years from now and see which lenses are holding their value better . . . Nikon or E-Mount? How about a $5.00 bet?
I can tell you without a shadow of doubt that I will not be investing any E-mount lenses. But by the same token, I probably won't be investing in any Nikon lenses either unless they are for shooting stills. For me, it's PL lenses from here on out for video.

...with teeny, tiny pixels, so it won't be very sensitive and all the electrical noise and heat generated by cramming so many pixels on to such a small chip will likely lead to a noisy image. Add to that the difficulties of creating a lens with a spectacularly high MTF in order to give decent resolution with those tiny photosites and it looks to me like it would be a seriously compromised camera all about pixel count hype and less about image quality. Throw in big diffraction issues giving soft pictures at small apertures for the icing on the cake.

I will take that bet, given even old Minolta A-mount lenses hold their value on ebay at least.

Re: Canon FD glass?

Well, I don't know a single video professional who owns Minolta lenses, either, so the bet is on! See you in 2015? :-)
