I am thinking of getting a replacement for my P50, and wondered which models of the MZ range were capable of using my manual lenses, not wanting have to buy a full new set all at once.

Hi,

from what I can tell via google, they both use the KA mount, you should have no problem with any lens you currently own. I'd wait for someone else to confirm that though.

Cheers

Four film cameras cannot use lenses without an A setting on the aperture ring. They are the MZ30, MZ50, MZ60 and *ist.

In addition, the DSLRs cannot use pre-A lenses except in manual mode. However, this is rather akin to using a camera like an MX, and not a major hardship.

I have used the MZ5, MZ5n and currently use the MZ3. All these are fine and are IMHO the superior bodies in the MZ range.

I especially like the fact that they utilize a conventional shutter speed dial.
Best regards, John
