3rd party LENS adaptors - silly question?
Sep 30, 2011

Dear all,

I'm a SONY ALPHA shooting and Minolta SLR film shooter and I'm just not getting interested in the NEX line, specifically the NEX 7 to compliment my A900. Can someone please let me know if the LENS adaptors for NIKON/CANON/Pentax/Olympus, etc... will the be in MANUAL mode only?

If so, are people still enjoying the use of the 3rd party lenses even with MANUAL controls? What about pricing of the 3rd party lens adaptors, relatively cheap or prohibitively expensive?

Thank you in advance!

From the minds of Minolta to the imagination of Sony, Alpha, like no other.
