Re: Question: should I try a37 for some old MD lenses?

IBIS won't work, no electronics, this is unfortunate, other system such as the oly m4/3 and pentax allow user to dial up the FL for IS even without the lens electronic contacts... blame this one on sony.

MD lens can't be adapt onto Alpha mount, not without doing a lot of hacking anyways, all the "adapters" are not worth it, either cheap glass or no infinity focus...

M42 lens works great with the A37 though, focus peaking in the EVF, infinity focus and metering, all works... it's good.
