Issues using EFCS with manual/legacy lenses?
7 months ago

There's a cryptic warning in the A6000 manual... don't have it handy at the moment, but it's something about EFCS not being advisable for non Sony lenses. I'm totally out of my depth as to why that might be the case, but as a guy who often shoots vintage glass (with an EFCS-less NEX-5) it has me wondering ...anything really to this warning? Any of you who shoot manual lenses on a model with EFCS, have you noticed any issues requiring you to disable EFCS?

On another note (because I never got a response when I asked in another thread) can any of you shooting manual on the A6000 relate your experience with the lower resolution EVF, the magnification assist controls, focus peaking, etc.?

Thanks!
