3rd-Party Lenses for Nikon Z, Canon RF, Sony E, Fujifilm GF Mirrorless Cameras

re: The Camera Market is Down to Two 35mm Format Contestants: Sony A1 and Canon TBD

A system that locks you into their brand lenses is a poor value proposition. The hassle of lens adapters and all their problems is not a reasonable solution—I’m talking native-mount lenses.

At the outset, the strength of the Sony mirrorless ecosystem was and is its wide range of lens choices, starting with its partnership with Zeiss. Sony’s brilliant strategic move at the outset was to allow/encourage the development of lenses from other vendors. So we now have Sony/Zeiss, Zeiss Loxia, Zeiss Batis, Voigtlander FE, Sigma FE and half a dozen other brand lenses for Sony.

Similarly, Fujifilm medium format allows other brand lenses in native mount, and Fujifilm itself even offers a lens adapter for H-mount lenses and an adapter for its cameras to view camera lenses.

The good news is that 3rd-party options have emerged for all the mirrorless brands now. Is this not the golden age of photography?

Still, top-grade lens companies like Zeiss and Sigma have yet to support Nikon Z and Canon RF platforms, and it’s unclear if that will change—probably not unles Canon and Sony increase market share, which seems unlikely.

Please use these links to buy, thank you.

Non-Nikon native-mount lenses for Nikon Z

A good start, but only 2nd-tier vendors Sigma, Zeiss.

Non-Canon native-mount lenses for Canon RF

A good start, but only 2nd-tier vendors Sigma, Zeiss.

Non-Fujifilm native-mount lenses for Fujifilm medium format

Not bad, given the relatively small market. But only 2nd-tier vendors Sigma, Zeiss. I’d sure like to see what Zeiss and Sigma could do on a 44 X 33mm sensor.

Non-Sony lenses for Sony mirrorless

A huge cornucopia of lenses for Sony including Sigma and Zeiss.
