Manual lens without aperture ring + Adapter with aperture ring + teleconverter; possible?
Jan 11, 2013

Ps. sorry for cross-posting this from the Nex-forum but I'm not getting answers there and would like to be sure before buying of not.. perhaps I have more luck here

Dimitri

Thanks in advance!

As I understand it, the teleconverter would fit between the adapter and the lens right? and there are no mechanisms in the teleconverter to transmit the settings of the aperture from the adapter to the lens?

The adapter under way has an embedded aperture ring.

Because this lens doesn't have an aperture ring...

  • Question is: will I be able to control the aperture (manually) with this setup?

Image quality is not really of importance right now; this is just experimenting various focal lengths with the least money possible, with my Nex-6.

A also cheap adapter is under way and I should get it within a week.

For just 15€ I can get a used Soligor 2x teleconverter (edit: model is Soligor 2x MC7) to experiment with the following (cheap) 70-300mm lens I have: Minolta AF 75-300 F4.5-5.6 D
