  1. #1 Nikon mount option for UMP. 
    Does anyone have experience using the optional Nikon mount for the UMP?
    Wondering if there are any disadvantages compared to the canon/EF mount?

    I use the Nikon Mount for mine.

    Used with Nikon AF-S, AI, AI-S, and Tamron lenses.

    Two things:

    1. There is a bit of play on the bigger lenses. Its negligible to me, as I use a lens support rig with a matte box. Some users have issues though.

    2. The inner ring on the mount didn't work with my Tamron 15-30 VC lens. (I made a post a month ago in this forum about it). The Tamron VC switch control area made contact with the inner ring on the BlackMagic f mount and I couldn't physically get the lens to seat into the mount.

    I basically took a Dremel to the blackmagic F mount, repainted the piece and it works great now.

    I have no complaints, really. But if I was a run and gun type of shooter that used heavy lenses without a rig and supports, I'd be annoyed at the play between it and the lenses. Again, some users experienced alot of play, others not much if any...depends on the individual piece.

    Thanks Erik!
    That's just the kind of real-world, hands-on insight I was looking for.
    Can you give me a sense of how long it takes to switch between EF and Nikon mounts?
