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.
