  • FED2

    Arkady, thanks for the review, as always, everything is intelligible. There is still a question about the adapter. The fact that autofocus will be only on lenses with a motor is understandable. It's not clear how the diaphragm will work on them all? especially lenses of the “G” series. there are very few electronic diaphragms.

  • FED2

    It turns out that the diaphragm drummer is only in the adapter, and is controlled by the contacts from the camera?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      Yes, that's right.

  • Andrew Ch.

    Today the famous Russian photographer Dimon (in the world Medvedev) visited the KMZ and highly appreciated this camera. It is designed for such 'photographers'.

  • Ivan

    I always wait for the price tag on the secondary market to drop two or three times, in our periphery, I have met a wedding photographer with D90 so far, so you can wait ...
