Lens adaptor (noob) advice.
Mar 29, 2013

Hi,

Just out of curiosity I'd like to pick up some character lens, such as the Rokkor 58mm for its great bokeh. There are a lot of cheap lens I can pick up & play with without spending $100's

However, I've never used a lens adaptor & i am slightly unsure of what to look for.

1) I understand that aperture control is not possible, but may be if i get the right sort of adaptor.

2) I understand that I need a brand->e mount specific adaptor (such as konica AR > Emount)

Given this, what would be a good starting point?

I mean what brand lenses will give me a good choice of cheap & quirky lens AND also there will be an adaptor so i can adjust aperture.

Do you have any specific suggestions for a starting point? First up I would be interested in something like the rokkor, but it doesnt have to be minolta, any brand - i use this as an example.
