I'm planning to edit the very popular How much do lens lineups vary across DSLR platforms? question to specifically mentionDSLRs, and then ask a separate one for mirrorless compact system cameras.

It happens that (due to the age of the question) most of the questions mostly refer to SLR systems anyway. In fact, that's arguably the intent of the question.

I think it will be more useful to do this and to have a separate one for the newer type of camera, but I wanted to mention it here before I went and did it. Anyone object?

There is an issue here when considering formats like the EOS-M from cannon where only a handfull of lenses have been created however all canon lenses can work on EOS-M bodies with the appropriate adapter supplied by canon. Just a thought

    \$\begingroup\$ I doubt there's any issue. Lenses connected through adapters don't count. For NEX you also can connect any A-mount lens created since 1987 and it'll work with DSLR-quality AF (unlike with EOS adapter) thanks to SLT and DSLR AF system in adapter itself. But it doesn't matter. It's not a system lens. Same with EOS-M: It can use EOS lenses through adapters, but they are from the different system, so hardly can be discussed. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Feb 1, 2013 at 13:47
  • \$\begingroup\$ Or, from an alternate point of view: talking about which lenses are easily adapted for each system is a worthwhile point for the answers. Either way, I agree it's not really a problem. \$\endgroup\$
