    Default Poll: Method of mounting lenses to SLR bodies

    Hey guys! Just thought of a really random (but hopefully relevant) question here. I'm curious about how the general SLR society mount their lenses onto their bodies. I know I always mount my lenses to the camera (just because I don't own any long telephoto lenses), but I know a few shooters who insist on twisting their body on any lens to mount.

    So, here are the poll choices:
    - Mount lens to camera (twist lens to fit)
    - Mount camera to lens (twist camera to fit)
    - Depends on factors (Size of lens, Size of cam body, which mounted to tripod etc)

    Hope we can have a weird discussion here! haha~

    I always tend hold the lens with right hand and body with left. since my right hand is the active one, I always twist the lens.

    For mounted lenses obviously turn the body lor. Else i always screw the lens on, maybe because more tactile feedback.

    You need a fourth option: Only 1 lens, always mounted.

    The next poll will be "Do you press the shutter release button into the body or press the body into the button" hohoho
