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.

If they're just empty tubes with no glass

in them then there will be no problems.

I don't know about the crop issue but you are moving from e mount to a mount so you will need different or additional adapters.

OP makes no mention of A-mount.

No additional adapters are needed.

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! ;)
