Once purchased, is it possible to switch lens mounts? I'd like to be able to move between PL and Canon RF
Asked by: Barry
Yes you will be able to switch to different lens mounts using the Interchange Mount System (IMS) kits for LWZ.3. But the choices are PL, EF (Canon), E(Sony), F(Nikon) or Micro 4/3rds. We do not have an RF option at the moment.

The thread present on the bottom of the ZEISS 21-100mm T2.9-3.9 Lightweight Zoom LWZ.3 Lens (E-Mount, Feet) BH #ZE21100EF is 3/8"-16.
