My old Nikon is on it's way out and I'm thinking of getting a mirrorless and was wondering what the MSG gang would recommend?  Thanks.

Assuming you want to stay Nikon-- use an adapter for your current lenses.


Good read and current

In 2017, I switched to a Fuji (currently have the XT-3) as I wanted to cut the weight of what I was carrying around. I've been very happy with the image quality. I had previously used Canon for decades - wasn't unhappy with the quality, but sold all the gear and lenses and started afresh.

Very happy here with the Canon R5 and some of it's RF L lenses.

But then again I am a Canon user for multiple years, so maybe a bit biased :)

I tested the Canon R and RP. Did not love either but the R5 has been amazing! It is always so sharp and the eye focus is the best feature. The RP has that feature too but I found the menu and other options hard to get to/work with.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for all replies. For Real's list was very helpful.  I'm open to other manufacturers but I would like to keep using nikon lenses I already own.  Are there any issues with adapters for Nikon lenses on non-Nikon cameras?

Personally, I would stay with Nikon brand if you plan on using your older lenses.

But most likely when you start with the mirrorless camera, you soon want to replace your old lenses with the new mirrorless lenses from the manufacturer (I speak of experience).

So then you could have changed manufacturer anyway in the beginning. But it obviously depends on your budget in the end.

Just think about it carefully if you are really happy with Nikon and you want to use the old lenses with the converter.

Exactly this for me, except it was 2019. Once I made the decision, I didn't want to deal with adapters. For much less the price of what was available then in Canon mirrorless and one piece of decent glass, I got the XT3 and 5 lenses I have been extremely happy with. As a bonus, it made photography fun again.

Hi SVH,

( I don't know how to insert quotes) 

"Just think about it carefully if you are really happy with Nikon and you want to use the old lenses with the converter..."

I am happy with current lenses on DSLRs but my concern is do lenses work glitch-free with adapters/converters, even with Nikon mirrorless?  Eventually I probably would get new lenses but if old lenses work fine I can take my time switching over to newer equipment.

I plan on going mirrorless with Canon to include the newer lenses but will keep my older Canon and lenses as a backup since is is 50mp.

I don't know about Nikon. Never used it but my old canon lenses worked just fine with the converter on the R5. It's just a nuisance to use it (not only you have to switch the lens but also the adapter) and then newer lenses are of much better quality (but very pricey). I'll guess it will be the same for Nikon as well.
