If you have an interchangeable lens camera, such as a DSLR or CSC, then you're probably aware that the ability to use a range of different lenses with your camera can be very useful. You should also be aware that you can't mix and match lenses designed for different camera mounts. You can't use a Nikon lens on a Canon camera and vice-versa.
