Betty LaRue Posted August 25, 2018 Share Posted August 25, 2018 While older Nikon lenses can be used on these cameras, you lose some of the “downsizing” aspect. Nikon lenses are pretty heavy. I have at least 7 Fuji lenses, all made for mirrorless. The 80-400 Nikon lens was heavier than the 100-400 I use now. Maybe not a lot, I haven’t compared. Maybe it’s because the camera is lighter. Whatever, I could only shoot the Nikon zoom on a tripod or monopod, whereas I can hand hold the Fuji. Could be a few ounces tipped the balance. The Nikon adapter will add some weight, too. If Nikon wants to be successful with mirrorless, they need to bring out a line of lenses made for these new cameras. Meanwhile, people can still use what they have with the adapter until they can afford new. The thing Fuji had over Sony mirrorless is that these excellent lenses have been churned out from the beginning. From what I’ve read, Sony dragged their feet but finally added a few good lenses for mirrorless. I probably had at least 4 sharp-as-a-tack Fujinon lenses by the time Sony woke up and smelled the coffee. Where Sony got it right from the starting line was the RX100s!
