Shooting with a vintage lens on a new camera is entirely feasible with the aid of a specialized adapter bridging the gap between the two. One might question the rationale behind such a choice, given the abundance of excellent modern lenses available. However, vintage lenses possess a distinct charm, capable of producing exquisite imagery with exceptionally creative bokeh effects. Unlike their modern counterparts, vintage lenses lack autofocus functionality; instead, adjustments are made manually directly on the lens itself, while other camera functions remain operable.
Different vintage lenses sometimes have a different connection, so you always need a different adapter that connects the lens to your new camera.

There are many different brands of Vintage lenses, the most famous ones are the Helios 44-2, Pentacon 50mm, Carel Zeiss, Meyer Optik Trioplan, and many more. Most lenses also have different models and series, and were made in different analog eras.

The vintage lens features in a new guise is called Lensbaby Composer Pro, which works approximately the same as a Vintage lens, you control the aperture on the lens. You can place different optics in the Composer Pro. Such as sweet, edge, twist, creative bokeh, soft focus and others. Lensbaby also has some prime lenses.
