The Mercury can theoretically adapt most medium and large format lenses. Here’s what we’ve tested so far:
Medium Format System Lenses
Mamiya 645: We have an adapter available for this. The adapter screw into either an Ilex No. 4 shutter for lenses lacking shutters, or into a special spacer for lenses that already do have a built in leaf shutter (note: leaf shutters lenses can also be used with the Ilex option).
Pentax 67: We have an adapter available for this. All but one Pentax 67 (the 90mm LS) lens requires the Ilex No. 4 shutter.
Pentax 645: Our kit adapts any P645 lens to an Ilex No. 4 shutter, and the shutter to the Mercury.
Medium and Large Format View Lenses
These lenses are ideal for Mercury use, as they already contain built in shutters and tend to be light and trim. These are our recommended lenses for the Mercury! The table below details all of the lenses we’ve fully tested to the Mercury. Most other lenses that are similar to these will easily work as well.
Here’s the lens database for view lenses (will be updated as new lenses are added):

Other Lens Systems
We are also working on a Canon EF mount version of the camera (to which most other 35mm system lenses can be adapted). Let us know what you’d like to use!
