Lens adapters for Sony Alpha cameras

DSC07164DSC07164Older film lenses and the Sony mirrorless adapters.

One of the features that attracted me to the Sony mirrorless digital cameras was the ability to use different lenses. Not only could I use some of my Canon EF lenses but in my camera collection I could drag out the older Olympus, Pentax, and even Carl Zeiss from my Contax camera system and give them new life and extend my creative options.

For my older Contax lenses I purchased the Metabones CY-E mount adapter. My reason I went with the more expensive adapter for the Zeiss lenses is because the value and quality of the optic. I wanted to make sure that quality was "passed down" to the Sony. And I wasn't disappointed the tight fit and ability to focus smoothly wasn't affected in the least.

K&F concept adapters I purchased for both my Pentax and Olympus OM lenses. And found them to be every bit as good as the Metabones adapters with all metal construction and a solid feel. The lenses also focus all the way to Infinity like the Metabones. So in both cases these adapters are a great way to bring the older film lenses into the digital age and give them value in imaging again.

Since my original posting I've added 2 more adapters to my collection, and they have worked incredible. I purchased a Nikon G to Sony adapter and one for Canon FD and in a matter of moments my Sony A7 and A72 cameras have over 20 lenses now that I can use. And I couldn't be more happy with the K&F Concept brand of adapters. Most of those adapters cost around $18 but are more solid than my Metabones adapter costing $100. And I've noticed a vignette issue with the Metabones for Yashica/Contax also, that I hadn't noticed before.
