I've been a Nikon user on and off for about 50 years. I recently purchased a Sony A7R III with a FE 4/24-70 lens. Unfortunately I spent all my money on the package and don't have the money to purchase a telephoto lens. I didn't realize how expensive Sony glass was. I'm now wondering if I made a bad mistake. Does anyone have suggestions as to how to get around this? I've tried a Teleconverter and that was worse than useless. I'm now thinking an adapter, which I see some of them can run into the hundreds without even purchasing another lens. I would like to get something in the 75 - 300mm range. Has anyone tried this? What was the best Teleconverter and lens combo? I realize that I will have to go manual but that is not a problem.

Thanks Everyone and have a Great Day.

John, though I don't an Adapter for my Sony A9ii I have heard from others that swear by the sharpness of using their Canon or Nikon glass. I see Adorama has the Fotodiox FUSION Smart AF Adapter Mark II for Nikon G-Mount AF-I/AF-S Lens to Sony E-Mount a6300, a6500, a7 II, a7R II, a7R III, a9 Mirrorless Camera for $276.96...Here's a link to their website for more information.....


Good luck!

    • So we have an "undeniable" shutter firing, as identified by you by its sound, yet no apparent picture was taken. Let's settle for now on the undisputed observation, that a sound was emitted. The internet is full of reports from SonyAlpha users about such sound phenomena after power down, and a wide range of explanations is being given. The most detailed and plausible explanation of which (in my view) was given by this guy. Of course you are free to believe any other explanation, which
    • No, the camera didn’t take a picture. But the sound was undeniably of shutter firing ! And it has happened quite a few times before too, after I switch the camera off. 
    • Maybe we should first confirm, that the shutter indeed fired, after you switched off your camera. What makes you believe, the shutter fired? Did the camera take an additional picture? Or did you possibly interpret a "sound" from the camera as a shutter firing? Please provide more detail.
    • Hi !  I was wondering why the shutter fires even after switching off my A7RIII. Kindly enlighten me on this
