M-Mount Lenses: Bellamy Hunt's top ten

Posted on by Mike Evans

Now is the time to dust off those old M-mount lenses because demand is sure to rise following the launch of the Sony A7. There is already keen interest in marrying old M lenses to APS-C and micro four thirds bodies. But the Sony is full frame and these older lenses will perform as nature intended, at their full 35mm-equivalent focal length. This is a huge difference and is a development that will drive demand for good M-mount legacy glass.

Timely, then, that Bellamy Hunt of Japan Camera Hunter has compiled this fascinating guide to his top-ten M-mount lenses. See a few old favourites but also some surprising choices.
