I have an A6000 which I shoot with old Contax Zeiss and Nikon AIS manual lenses. I was considering the purchase of one of Sony's full frame A7 models. My plan was to rent one of these cameras and check it out, but I have a question. I've been using Fotga brand CY-NEX and Nikon-NEX adapters to use these lenses on my A6000. Can I use these same adapters on a full frame A7* camera without the picture being reduced to crop mode? I'm fairly certain these would work fine, but I wanted to be sure before renting the unit. Thanks in advance for responses.
question regarding adapters

No new adapters needed, like Username already correctly pointed out, and Contax-Yashica and Nikon glass will work wonderfully on the full frame bodies (I use both brands on the original A7r, and assuming you haven't got a lemon in the first place, these "old" lenses are super sharp)

I am using adaptors for a quite number of my C/Y Zeiss and other glasses, and for some medium format glasses on my A7 and A6000, but because of the weight, I have replace the flimsy Sony bayonet rings with more stable rings from Fotodiox.Everything works fine now!
My recommendation, don't buy the very cheap adaptors, buy the better quality!

If they're just empty tubes with no glass
in them then there will be no problems.
Hi, my adaptor got glass inside and the a77 prompt some message which i could not proceed to use it manually. What's the next move? Is there a certain settings that i have to change?
