    Don’t think this report is fair to the FS-7 and e-Mount as it would seem the host has not done his homework. While there are more lenses available in other mounts, it’s not
    right to call the e-mount system “troubling”. e-Mount has an 18mm flange to focal plane
    (sensor) depth which is probably the shortest (and thus most versatile) available.
    This means that you can use just about any lens mount adapter out there including
    Leica, PL, Arri Bayonet, Minolta/Alpha, Canon EF, Nikon, and so many others.
    Sony’s particular strength is their sensors. No mention here about that.
    Personally, I’ve been using about a dozen e-mount lenses for two years now on feature films, television shows, and music videos with superb results.

      Hi Cynthia,

      Thanks for pitching in. I’m very familiar with the E-mount. Sony would have never gone with a FZ mount (like on the F5/F55) as the FS7 is targeting budget oriented shooters and small prod co’s and rental houses. No option for any other mount, they have to protect their lenses. As the MFT mount, the E-mount is far from perfect, but then again what is these days.

      Sony are on a mission to expand their lens range as outlined in their latest roadmap, Loxia’s etc., and more primes. I could have possibly used a more appropriate word in the podcast, but such evades me at the moment. Wasn’t meant to bash Sony’s mount, just an observation. Recently was on a shoot with 2 A7s’s and 1 x FS7 and both were a bit of pain to get the Metabones Smart Adapter IV off, it felt like they were glued together. I have a feeling the tolerance on the FS7 e mount and the A7s e-mount with some cameras may be slightly off… maybe it was a fluke, maybe it was the adapter, who knows… just saying.

      Cheers,
      O
