Looking at option to use new Zeiss 15mm ZF mount (Nikkor F) on a Canon Body. It was suggested in the video blog from Stefan Czech.
Apparently the ZF version has an aperture ring that is ideal for video. And considering a $3K investment for a lens, having dual use on Nikon and Canon bodies (with adaptor) sounds like a deal maker.
I absolutely know this is Manual Focus - the lens is. No issue. I am almost always Manual, especially for a wide on landscapes. The sensor lightup on the Canon side sounds helpful nevertheless.
But what grief will I have for exposure even with an manual aperture ring available?
Not sold on the concept yet.
And this question likely applies to other Nikkor lenses. I know the 14-24 has no aperture ring so its what - guess?
