Any which way you look at it FF = avoirdupois so far; unless the new expensive FE 24-70 zoom works good then you could ditch the adaptor and realize a more compact FF setup, sort of, and if it works good that is, and it should if it’s going to cost that much.
Its way out of my budget range but I guess there are lots of people out there who won’t be fazed.
My problem with FE lenses is the extension tube built into the lenses making them larger than they otherwise could have been…why make a compact short register FF mount and not capitalize on that?
btw Merry X-mas everyone.
