This week saw the announcements of several new cameras, from Nikon and Canon, along with some new lenses. Jason and Rick give their first impressions of the new Nikon D780 and new Nikkor lenses, plus the flagship Canon 1DX Mk III, Fujifilm X-Pro 3 and Olympus OM-D-EM1X. New lenses from Nikon include the 120-300mm f/2.8 sports zoom, and a 70-200mm f/2.8 S for Nikon Z-mount mirrorless cameras.
Have you ever wanted to use one brand of lens on a different brand of camera? One really cool thing about newer mirrorless cameras is that many of them can be used with DSLR lenses with alternative mounts. All you need is the right lens mount adapter. This week, we discuss the different types of lens mount adapters and the pros and cons of mounting lenses on different brands of cameras.
