Interesting. Got a bunch of Nikon lens that I don't use that much. Probably will get one to use with my M5/M6. My zone/hyperfocal focusing skills are so so, maybe give it a try.

Thanks for the advice :) But as stated on post, I don't do video, and for digital, when inclined to do it, use a Canon 6d with a host of Leica R, Zeiss QBM and Olympus lens.
