    :) I dunno if adaptation is the right word...

    I have a few CY lenses and a few OM lenses. I had them mostly Leitax converted to EOS. However, after picking up a NEX system I removed the Leitax mount to avoid using 2 adapters per lens on my NEX system. I planned to sell the Leitax kits.

    Before I do that what I am wondering is... would it be better to keep using a high quality adapter like a Leitax for shooting on EOS and then use a high quality adapter to go from EOS to NEX, or is it better to keep the lens in it's native mount and use only use one adapter???

    I did pick up a Novoflex adapter for my CY > NEX lenses, and I have to say I really like it.

    Do you plan to ever shoot the lenses on another EOS camera? If so, keep the Leitax adapters. If not, sell the Leitax and buy something else for the NEX.

    That's what I'd do, YMMV. ;)

    I do plan to shoot them on EOS some... Esp. the CY35-70. :)

    The bummer is there isn't a Novoflex adapter to go from EOS > NEX. I was hoping to do an exchange. Hmmmmmm.
