The 4 DL Lenses are nice lenses, pricey too.
Has there been any Metabones type adapter for the DL mount?

Would be nice if lenses could be used off the X7.

No, there are no alternatives. Metabones will never happen for a DJI lense system IMO. Weight and balance issues would never work. If you want a better camera system you need go to a different drone platform.

@The Editor hey thanks, some interesting read!
No solution, but it's been a discussion by others.
The 3D printed plate was an interesting concept... all manual but would add lens options.

The mention of DJI introducing a few more DL lenses... 12 & 85mm.
I'd tend to agree, more would be introduced but it's been what...2 years since introduction of the X7?
I'd like to see a DL 10mm f2 Auto... that'd be a perfect!
Like the Loawa in the X5S, and will get DL 9mm... but the Manual Lens is a bit of a fussy setup.

My focus was more the other way around... find a body that is similar in sensor and accepts the DL Lenses for hand carry or hand gimbal mount. So you'd maintain the same lens aerial to ground.
Like a Sony A6000 series with a S35 season size.

Great reads thanks...
