  1. Few days ago, I got Macro adapter(s) for E-mount Full Frame; 10mm + 16mm. Easy to mount; tried 16mm adapter today, with some tech stuff, phone macro, SD card macro, it's really doing what described; as autofocusing is enabled by electronics being connected thru adapter; at the first look, it's working nicely. Will try to test more, outside, taking images in forest, nature. Must say that I had already 49mm filter magnifier. Did not use it a lot, as it's image results are not perfect, still for some basic needs (just magnifying and tolerating images being distorted), it works as well. For smartphones, there are lots of those "adapters", Wide, Telephoto and Macro, most of them with very bad vignetting, many with optics far from being good, but still working. With the Macro adapters 10mm + 16mm, must say that Sony autofocusing looks (sometimes) a bit "confused" for few milliseconds, then it "makes" proper distance decisions. Images, finally, look good.
  2. From the album: Rokkor 50 1.4 on Sony a6000

    Granny was rocking my newborn daughter on the deck, and I snapped a photo with my a6000 and Minolta Rokkor 50mm 1.4.
  3. From the album: Rokkor 50 1.4 on Sony a6000

    Shot this guy like 15 minutes after buying a cheap Minolta 1:1 extension tube from our local camera shop for $10. Added it to my 50 1.4 Rokkor and a6000 and found this guy behind the building. Right place, right time. Shot handheld.
  4. Hi there ! Soon, i'll receive my new photo-cam Sony Alpha a6000, including SEL P-1650 objective. I already have few Hoya filters 58mm, which i have use them on my older photo-cam. I'd like to know, what are my options to use those filters on a6000 ? Is there any adapter or ? Thanks for any kind of information, maybe link Best
  5. Does anyone know why Sony (or 3rd parties) can't make a better adapter for their A-mount SSM and SAM lenses? For example, the relatively inexpensive Sony 28-75 f2.8 is a really good lens. I've tried several copies and they make sharp, contrasty images. However, the AF on my E-mount bodies (a9 & a6500) is hampered by the paucity of focus points. The limiting factor is obviously not the bodies, and I don't think it's the lenses. It seems to be the adapter!
  6. Long story short I only need 1 lens to work and function a certain way. I do NOT need autofocus. But it's the new Sigma 14-24mm for Nikon that just came out a little while ago, not many people have it on their radar. I just need it to work on aperture priority mode and be able to bracket photos as well. But i shoot on manual focus at infinite. I'm wondering if only the more expensive adapters like the commlite will work with this function or if the cheaper 99 dollar ones will let me control aperture as well. I care about image quality but if the more expensive adapters are only that pricey because of autofocus I could care less. Any info would be appreciated, thanks!
  7. Hey folks, Im looking into buying a PL to E mount adapter. Ive done some research and landed on these 2. 1. Wooden Camera PL Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Pro Adapter. 2. Metabones PL to E-Mount Adapter with Internal Flocking. What are your thoughts? Any other adapter that I should consider? Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers!
  8. I am using a rented a7R II and SAL70400 with the adapter from A to E. On the a7R II it works pretty well but does not support DMF focus mode. I can live with that but not very happily. Today I tried the lens + adapter on my a6000 and it tried to autofocus but really could not do it. I tried both full auto and limited auto and it simply hunted. Since I had never read about that I decided to tell all of you what I experienced. FYI only.
  9. I've been considering buying an a6300 as an upgrade for my older Canon 70D for a while now, since its video performance is becoming quite obsolete for my recent productions. I'm not willing to buy Sony substitutes for all my existing glass, which is the reason why I'm willing to buy a Metabones mkIV adapter as well. The thing is, all of the reviews and topics I've ever seen are always talking about its focusing abilities for stills - which, as I could see, is pretty fast and accurate with almost no haunting in most circumstances. I haven't seen, though, anyone talking about its video autofocus performance, which is what matters the most for me. In their limitations section, they say "Continuous AF and video AF are not supported. (Performance may be unsatisfactory.)". As far as I'm concerned, there's no big difference between stills and video autofocus since it's the same focusing system after all. Could someone give me some light about this? How does Metabones behave within video recording? Best regards, Guido.
  10. Hi! I am very new to photography, so I need a lot of answers and opinions Please! I recently purchased a Sony a6000. I only have the 16-55mm lens that it came with. I was told that I could purchase used manual lenses and an adapter for much less than a lens that would go along with the camera. I found a Vivitar lens (70-210mm 1:4.5 MC Macro focusing zoom 52mm) at a garage sale for $7 and I am wondering if it would fit my camera with an adapter and what adapter would I use if it is going to fit??
  11. Hello everyone, I have recently purchased the a6500 and coming from SLR canon I have some lenses that I would continue to use. For this reason I had purchased the commlite adapter, but unfortunately it is totally incompatible, because nothing works. So I would ask what for canon lens adapter on sony a6500? Excluding the metabones adapter which for me is over budget.
  12. Hello, Does anyone know if there is a hot shoe adapter from Sony A7r to a standart flash without autofocus and TTL? I want to use my old Pentax A160 flash ( www.pentaxforums.com/accessoryreviews/pentax-af-160.html ) with my Sony A7r and to use it externally with a cable, but i don't find anywhere such an adapter. Thank you!
  13. In my latest video i´m comparing the Canon 70-200 F4 L vs. the Sony 70-200 F4 G OSS find out in this video which one is the winner! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=2775
  14. I am considering purchasing the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 and 35 1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for use on my Sony A7RII. Any thoughts on purchasing Canon version and using Metabones adapter vs Sigma version with Sigma MC-11 adapter? I have used the Metabones/Canon combination with my Canon L lenses. Any one with experience using the Sigma/Sigma MC-11? I am thinking of selling my set of Canon 16-35L 1.2II, 24-70L 2.8II, 50L 1.2, and 85L 1.2II lenses. Thanks.
  15. In my latest blogpost i´m taking the Canon 85mm 1.8 for a testride again, this time with the Sigma MC11 Adapter on the mighty Sony A7rII. See why this is another great affordable Canon lens which you can use on your Sony which gives you great looking 4K Video and very sharp photos with very nice bokeh! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=2764
  16. Hello everyone ! my name is Raviv and I am new here. I use Sony mirrorless cameras from the very beginning - the NEX3. As for now I have an A7II and I'm very happy with it. I also have a Kooka adapter for Canon FE lenses thats works fine with Canon 17-40L. But this lens is not what I hoped for... I am thinking of buying a Tokina 12-28 (it's for APS-C, I know) and use it with the adapter. Has Anyone tried this combo (A7II + Kooka + tokina 12-28) ? Does the AF work properly ?
  17. on January 7th I wrote this mail to Metabones. I waited till today to give them a chance for comments. No answer jet! Do you noticed similar problems?? here are the images, that I sent to Metabones: the Zeiss Otus 1.4/85mm the Zeiss Makro Planar 2/100mm the Canon 17mm TS-E (tilt/shift) and this is the look of the mount on the adapter, full of brass (I did not send this image to Metabones) dierk
  18. In Part II of my Review for the Sony A7II Firmware 2.0 Update i´m comparing 3 affordable autofocus adapters Canon to Sony E-Mount. The contenders: Commlite Viltrox Fotga I´m also taking a quick look on the uncompressed RAW feature which is now available on the Sony A7II. Get some popcorn and beer and watch my video! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=390
  19. Sony recently gave us Sony A7II owners an amazing christmas present :-) The Firmware Update 2.0. This free firmware update transforms the A7II in the little brother of the A7rII, which allready has Phase Detect AF. In this first part of my 2 part review i take a look how good the Sigma 24mm 1.4 Canon Mount with the Commlite Adapter works in Single and Continues Focus modes. https://dsphotosblog.wordpress.com/2015/11/23/sony-a7ii-firmware-update-2-0-review-part-i/
  20. I am seriously looking at trading in my canon 60D and buying an a6300. A few questions i have though are: -Is there a battery grip that is coming out for the a6300? I know there is one by Vivitar for the a6000 but it does not work properly on the a6300. i want to be able to buy a dedicated grip for the a6300. -Does the fotodiox ef to e mount adapter work well? seeing a lot of good reviews on B and H but wanting some opinions from here. i have a good collection of canon lenses that i would love to use on the a6300. -is it worth getting the 16-50mm kit lens? what intrigues me is the power zoom function, and the good focal length range. i have a canon 16-35mm f2.8L mk I though, so is it worth the extra $ to get the kit lens? I do a lot of mixed photography and video work with the 16-35 being my main workhorse. -what are the ESSENTIAL accessories to get with the a6300? things that you absolutely NEED to get the best out of the camera. Thank you SO MUCH in advance guys! Masi
  21. Just recently noticed that the WO button on my IV T adapter is no longer providing any tactile feedback. In other words, where it was lifting and depressing before, it is no longer providing any of that resistance/push after you actuate the button. It just kind of flops about with no tension. Anyone have this happen to them? If so, what was the fix? Hoping to be able to fix this ASAP as I only shoot adapted EF mount stuff on my Sony rig. Any help would be super greatly appreciated.
  22. The last 3 days i have been visiting a Street Artist Festival in Linz, Austria the "Pflasterspektakel" A perfect event to test my trusty Canon 70-200 F4 L again using the MC11 Adapter. Take a look at lots of images with these great street artists! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=1945 ‪
