Compatible with my camera

On this page you'll find information about which vintage lenses are compatible with your digital camera. The GREEN color means full compatibility, and adapter rings are readily available. The ORANGE color signifies optically compatible systems, but direct adapters are not available. The YELLOW marker means that you'll need to apply some auxiliary solution (e.g. speedbooster adapter), otherwise they'd be optically incompatible.

Terminology

In terms of compatibility, we distinguish four separate categories:

COMPATIBLE
PARTIALLY COMPATIBLE
COMPATIBLE IN THEORY
NOT COMPATIBLE
This means that you'll be able to apply the lens on the camera in question with a proper adapter, and full focus range will be available with it (often with aperture control too). If AF is supported, you'll see it in the description.
This means that due to the flange focal depth or other factor this conversion would be normally unfeasible, but with some compromises (e.g. using a speedbooster adapter) can be made possible.
This means that the flange focal depth should make mounting and using inifinty focus possible, but for some reason there are no adapter rings available or other factors make it unviable.
This means that you won't be able to mount your lens due to mechanical incompatibility or the difference in flange focal depth doesn't make inifinity focus possible. Although numerous lenses can be mounted on cameras without infinity focus, but this cannot be considered actual compatibility.

Additional information for compatible variations:

MF
AF
MA
AA
SB
MAC
TS
manual focus (on the lens, with its own control ring)
autofocus available (AF controlled by the camera body)
manual aperture control (on the lens, with its own control ring)
automatic aperture control (controlled by the camera body)
speedbooster (focal reducer) adapters are available
macro (variable length) adapters are available
tilt-shift (or other flexible) adapters can be used

If you'd like to read more in-depth about compatiblity, you'll need to get familiar with flange focal depth, see this article.
