    So your's can, mine cannot.
    As I posted, it is a PiA to use my Nikon DSLR lenses on my m43. And I go back to 1950s functionality, no auto anything.
    So not a universal condition.

    Firstly, I would like to say some positive aspects of a mirrorless camera. They are very easy to carry. Smaller,lighter and cheaper than a DSLR. Instead of view finder it has live view system.

    Secondly, I would like say a few cons of it. The autofocus system of mirrorless is much slower. It has heavily customizable settings that can be hard for you since it has no view finder.
    So, choice is yours.

    I used all Nikon gear for many years but due to ill health I needed to carry less weight around so I changed to Panasonic Lumix gear. I wish I had done this years ago.

    I switched from Canon to Panasonic last year.
    The only thing i'm missing - 135L.
    It can be fixed with Metabones Ultra easily.

    adapted lens work on my fujifilm but after using them, I just use the native mount glass. I don't get the hype. Most of the M42 show CA or nervous bokeh and frankly, the micro contrast leaves a lot to be desired. I tried it, it works but I'm not telling people to go out and get a fuji to mount your old glass on. Seems counter productive with all the great fuji glass offerings.

    Some old glass have unique character... signatures. But, I think that generally, the pro level OEM lenses coming from Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and Fuji ... all deliver wonderfully sharp images equal to pro level dSLR lenses.

    Having used manual focusing lenses professionally back in the film-only days. For me there is nothing finer than good autofocus.

    Old and modern manual lenses are amazing in video production, at least.

    Have you tried Oly's 75mm? While it's a little longer than 135mm (35-mm equivalent), it can produce some fantastic images.

    Yes, and i'll buy it.
    But in comparison with 135L it's just sucks.
    Not in the terms resolution, sharpness, color rendition and so on.
    Technically Oly is far superior,but images from 135L looks like magic to me.

    I enjoyed my 75mm when I was shooting MFT.
