Lets talk FE Lenses
7 months ago

Well the A7's have now been around for a couple of weeks and most feel they are a great piece if kit, but how about lens selection.

In the UK there are currently no FE lenses, so you need to use adaptors!

LAEA4.................... Not ideal as it adds significant bulk and loses half a stop of light and in main cases no IS

Other adaptors (Metabones) are better but you loose AF

Telephoto, now here is the main issue, ok you can use via the above adaptor but unless you have rock steady hands or a tripod you will need to increase the ISO as none are stabilised.

Also apart from the 55mm none are that fast, 35mm no IS and f2.8

So I guess we will have to be patient and wait a year for them to develop, I guess its the price you pay for buying a new system

I would be interest to hear how others are progressing with lens options?
