    The hard part is finding good older lenses that have aperture rings for digital capture. Most MF systems have these adapters and they do provide a nice option. Just have to see what lenses work good in this mode. There will be some for sure but a lot won't make the grade as well. Certainly welcome for the S2 folks and they just have to run some tests and see what works best for there needs.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    considering e.g. the S2's 70mm standard, surely the image circle is too small for MF backs?
