Lens mounts

Pekka Buttler, 2022

You may be someone who is happily and monogamously married to one combination of camera and lenses. Or you may be temporarily unattached, and scouting your options. Or you might be … not exactly unattached, but still playing the field. Or maybe you’re even one of those who think all limits are made to be broken… Whatever’s the case, there are good reasons for you to have a general interest in lens mounts.
